This course, making extensive use of resources available via the internet, focuses on the evolution of major types of Greek poetry,
including elegy, monodic lyric, and choral lyric. Students will participate in a weekly webcast lecture, an on-line discussion moderated
by faculty members from institutions that participate in Sunoikisis (www.sunoikisis.org), and weekly tutorials with faculty members at
Rhodes. This course is specifically designed for advanced students and will include a rigorous study of the cultural and historical context
of the Archaic Period. Students will also become familiar with current interpretative approaches to the material.
