  • Greek Bucolic Poetry

    Ancient Greek bucolic (or pastoral) poetry offers a fascinating look into the development of a genre out of the literary experiments of the early Hellenistic period. True to its name, the tradition centers around Theocritus’ colorful, often ironically humorous dialogues between herdsmen and other rural characters; but it encompasses a variety of themes, among them mythology, lamentation, and melodramatic narratives of unrequited love. We will read a broad selection of this body of poetry, by Theocritus and others, in the original Greek with attention to its linguistic and stylistic features and its place in the wider literary tradition.

  • Greek Texts in the Postclassical Tradition

    A treasure of unedited or insufficiently edited as well as untraslated or little studied Greek texts exists in the postclassical tradition (especially from the Roman period onward). The course will introduce graduate and qualified undergraduate students into this large body of later Greek literature as well as provide training in the study of manuscripts and the preparation of critical editions, translations, and commentaries. Participation in a joint publication project is possible.

  • Seminar: Hellenistic Poetry

    In this seminar we will read in their original Greek version extended portions of three major Alexandrian poets' works: Apollonius of Rhodes, Callimachus, and Theocritus, supplemented by readings in Hellenistic epigrams and other texts as well as secondary literature. We will pay attention to the social, political and literary environment of third century Alexandria, where –under very special conditions– these works were produced and received for the first time. We shall investigate the nature of the Hellenistic aesthetic, the relation of Hellenistic to archaic and classical poetry, and the way Hellenistic poetry is a reflection of its time and place.
