Introduction to Greek Literature at Cambridge University - Cambridge Centre for Greek Studies

This course of lectures is designed to place the Target Texts in context and to serve as a more general introduction to the study of Greek literature.

The structure of the lectures will be broadly chronological, but the focus will be on the cultural and social contexts in which literature was produced and on the varieties of critical approach which Greek literature invites.

No preliminary reading is necessary, but a first orientation to the whole subject may be found in:
