The struggles to cope with unjust and excessive suffering, victimization and obsessive passion – these are key themes of Prometheus Bound, Philoctetes and Hippolytus. While reading
easy-to-understand, contemporary translations of tragedies by Aeschylus, Sophocles and Euripides, we will use mini-lecture, discussion and video clips to explore these fascinating dramas and their relevance today. To our first class, please bring Bryan Doerrier’s All That You’ve Seen is God, which includes our first two plays.
