Description

Class Experience

Students develop an appreciation of ancient literature and learn about Perseus, Danae, Dictys, Polydectes, Hermes, Athena, Hades, Minthe, Acheron, Cocytus, the Graeae, Phorcus, Ceto, and far more. Etymology of words connected to these stories will be discussed.  Information is sourced from Pseudo-Apollodorus' 'Bibliotheca', Hyginus' 'Fabulae', fragments of Euripides' 'Andromeda' as the play has been lost to time, Herodotus' 'Histories', Ovid's 'Metamorphoses', and Hesiod's 'Shield of Heracles'. Further information is sourced from the works including, but not limited to, of Pindar, Sappho, Sophocles, and Homer.
