CLAS 222 - The Tragic and Comic Muse
Examines selected plays of the three great tragedians—Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides—and of the comedian Aristophanes. Focuses on the tragic account of human nature and its relationship to the gods, but considers as well comedy’s response to that account. Other topics for discussion include the role of Athenian politics, religion, and sociology within the plays and the importance of the classical stage in Athenian life.
