Greek Drama
CCIV 202
Spring 2011
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: THEA 202

In this lecture and discussion course on the major 5th-century BCE Greek tragedies and comedies, the main emphasis will be on reading the plays as performances rather than simply as texts. To do so, we will focus on the literary aspects of the plays, on the historical and social context in which they are performed, and on the conventions of Greek theatrical production. In addition, some 20th-century non-Greek plays may be assigned to illuminate certain tragic and comic motifs.
