The class studies either the first three books or a large part of
these with other selections. The Homeric age is considered. Attention
is given to special forms and to scansion.
342. Later Greek Literature.
On special solicitation of the class this term may be devoted to
readings in Greek comedy and tragedy. Ordinarily, however, this
term will be used in reading later Greek authors to get acquainted
with Hellenistic Greek. With these will be included reading from
two or more books of the septuagint and from the Apocalypse of
