Course Description

The primary aim of this course is to improve the student's facility in reading Greek prose. We will read two early dialogues, the Charmides and the Protagoras. Because of time constraints we will not be able, obviously, to discuss fully the issues raised in either dialogue. The student's grade will be based on 3 quizzes (10%, 15%, 20%) on which there will be a passage taken from the section we have read since the last quiz and an unseen passage; a cumulative final consisting of passages from the Charmides, the Protagoras and an unseen (40%), and a dialogue or part of a dialogue of your individual choice (roughly 20 OCT pages) to be read by yourself outside of class and which will be tested whenever you are ready as long as it is before the final (15%). Required: Platonis Opera III, ed. J. Burnet, Oxford Classical Texts (1899). Recommended: Greek Grammar, H.W. Smyth, Harvard University Press (1956).
