9780806141428: Eros at the Banquet: Reviewing Greek with Plato's Symposium (Oklahoma Series in Classical Culture Series)

After studying ancient Greek for a year, students often become discouraged when presented with unabridged classical texts that offer only minimal supportive apparatus.

In welcome contrast, this intermediate-level textbook reinforces the first-year lessons and enables students to read Plato's Symposium, one of the most engaging works in Attic Greek, the dialect taught in most first-year courses.

To meet the needs of students who are reading extended passages of challenging Greek for the first time, Louise Pratt, a classical scholar with more than twenty years' teaching experience, has lightly condensed the early readings, supplementing them with review exercises and new vocabulary. She includes the remaining portion of the dialogue in its entirety to give students the experience of reading Plato's imaginative dialogue in all its richness. All readings are glossed, with explanatory notes appearing on the same page as the relevant texts.

Enlivened by twenty-five illustrations, Eros at the Banquet also features an introduction explaining the Symposium's historical and philosophical significance, a comprehensive glossary, and an up-to-date bibliography. Instructors may also supplement this volume with Pratt's The Essentials of Greek Grammar: A Reference for Intermediate Readers of Attic Greek, which includes many examples from the Symposium.

About the Author:

Louise Pratt is Professor of Classics at Emory University. She is the author of Lying and Poetry from Homer to Pindar: Falsehood and Deception in Archaic Greek Poetics.

Review:

This coherent and thoughtful book addresses the dearth of intermediate materials for Greek students and teachers. In a very teacherly way, evidencing many years in the classroom and great concern for students, the author has offered an important solution to this deficiency.—Drew Keller, author of Learn to Read Latin
