Classical Drama: Three Greek Plays **NOTE: Fill out the Registration Form below BEFORE adding to Cart
Instructor: Thomas Banks
The plays of the ancient Greeks are the first great examples of dramatic literature known to us, and the reading of them is a lasting pleasure and profit to the mind. Thomas Banks hopes that you will join him this coming June when he will teach and interpret Sophocles’ Ajax, Euripides’ Alcestis, and Aristophanes’ The Clouds, describing along the way the religious origins of Greek drama, the achievements of the Athenian tragic and comic poets, and the place of their works in the spiritual context of their age.
