Women in Greek Tragedy
This course provides a look at women in the various roles they play in Greek tragedy: sacrificial virgin; devoted wife; faithless wife; mother; daughter; slave. Our focus will be on plays dealing with the Trojan War. We may do some reading aloud and will also watch one or two productions of plays. Select any translation you find enjoyable of the following plays: Aeschylus: ORESTEIA Trilogy (we will read the first two), Sophocles: ELECTRA, Euripides: IPHIGENIA IN AULIS; THE TROJAN WOMEN; HECUBA; ELECTRA; HELEN. Marilyn Scott has led a number of OLLI study groups and has also studied many of these plays in Greek.
