New Undergraduate Course Supplement 2022

GRK 21 Homer’s Odyssey

In this class, we will read four to five books of the Odyssey in Greek and the remaining books in translation. We will focus on learning how to read Homeric Greek with accuracy and speed, and we will also learn how to scan hexameter. In addition, we will explore some of the larger interpretive issues surrounding the poem and its composition, and in so doing we will read key contributions of contemporary scholarship. In class, students will practice close readings and literary analysis, especially when considering the Odyssey’s character, style, and narrative structure.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
