Description: We will read 16 Greek tragedies by Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides as well as contemporary criticism of tragedy by Aristophanes, Plato, and Aristotle. We will consider how ancient tragedies were staged, how they were received by their audiences, how they fit in the life of Athens, how they influenced later dramatic arts, and how they continue to stimulate thinking about the human situation.
