讲座介绍:

This lecture will introduce you to the sound and rhythm of Epic poetry in Ancient Greek and Latin. Epic was the most important kind of poetry in Classical antiquity and it includes texts such as Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey, Hesiod’s Theogony and Works and Days, Vergil’s Aeneid and Ovid’s Metamorphoses. What did this poetry sound like and how was it composed? The form of Epic is called hexameter and its origins lie in a preliterate culture that reaches back to the Proto-Indo-European period of western antiquity. This lecture will include an introduction to the nature of Ancient Greek and Latin but no knowledge of these languages is required to enjoy the lecture.
