This course provides a look at women in the various roles they play in Greek tragedy: sacrificial virgin; devoted wife; faithless wife; mother; daughter; slave. Our focus will be on plays dealing with the Trojan War. We may do some reading aloud and will also watch one or two productions of plays. Select any translation you find enjoyable of the following plays: Aeschylus: ORESTEIA Trilogy (we will read the first two), Sophocles: ELECTRA, Euripides: IPHIGENIA IN AULIS; THE TROJAN WOMEN; HECUBA; ELECTRA; HELEN.

Instructor Marilyn Scott has led a number of OLLI study groups and has also studied many of these plays in Greek.

This study group will meet on Wednesdays from November 11 through December 16.

Pre-registration is required via the OLLI website or phone. A link to access the study group will be e-mailed to you approximately one week prior to the first session.
