Classical literature shaped Western culture. This richly illustrated course will provide a guide to, and a celebration of, classical writers, from Homer through Hesiod and the Greek historians, playwrights and philosophers, into the Golden Age of imperial Roman poets, writers and historians. The Silver Age and beyond take us to the Classical authors’ impact on the Renaissance and Christian writings. Explore the narrative of ancient literature, the contexts, connections, and even legacies in later centuries; classical literature really is accessible and relevant.
