Learning outcomes

This course aims at providing an adequate undergraduate knowledge of the ancient Greek literature, also in relation to European cultural heritage. It is made up of two modules, each one for 6 CFU. The “introductive” one (i) is preparatory to the “advanced” (p). Both of them require the knowledge of the ancient Greek language. An Ancient Greek Laboratory for beginners is provided: for informations ask to didattica.lettere@ateneo.univr.it. At the same time, it wishes to provide appropriate instruments for a critical approach to texts and genres. The course will develop abilities of textual reading and analysis of poetical works of the ancient Greek literature within their historical and cultural contexts. It will also introduce students to critical approaches aimed at strengthening their analytical and argumentative skills. On successful completion of both its modules, students will be able to re-elaborate critically the acquired knowledge, to comprehend texts in ancient Greek and translate them into Italian, and to discuss topics employing appropriate linguistic and stylistic registers.

Program

Orestes’ vengeance
Both the “introductive” module and the “advanced” one concern the Atreidic myth and especially its most crucial phase, that is, Orestes’ vengeance on his father’s killers, as it is narrated in archaic epics, choral lyrics, and tragedy. The course will therefore concentrate on the 4th Book of the Odyssey, on Pindar’s 11th Pythian Ode, and on Aeschylus’ Choephori, the most ancient of the plays concerning the Atreidic myth.
TEACHING METHODS:
Classroom-taught lessons. Primary texts will be read in Greek, translated into Italian and commented. Attending students will take one self-assessment test at the end of each module. A written calendar of the topics that will be dealt with will be circulated in class at the beginning of the course.
Further teaching material will be available for download from the MOODLE repository.
