Greek Prose Authors: Thucydides

CLG 214

Info tab content
This course will introduce students to Thucydides' History of the Peloponnesian War, a work whose often formidable yet unforgettable manner of expression has made it a perennial touchstone of historical analysis, much as its author intended when he described it as a "possession for all time". We will read from Books II and VII, in Greek, including the deservedly famous funeral oration of Pericles, as well as some parts of each book in English.
