knowledge of the language. It is a reading of English translations
of the best selections from Greek classics. It will cover the entire
age of Greek Literature and will touch the best works in the several
fields, prose and poetry, epic, lyric, drama, tragedy, comedy. While
this does not take the place of studies in the originals, it will give a

tongues. Written reports are required.

332.-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
John. The main purpose is to show the later forms of the Greek language
and thus to prepare for the best work in the Bible courses.
