GREK 015. Sophocles
In Sophocles’ Ajax, Achilles is dead and the prize of his arms has been awarded to Odysseus. Can the hero withstand being passed over as ‘the best of the Achaens’? Can he accept that in a political community everything is in flux and friends become enemies, and enemies friends? We will be reading this tragedy in Greek, paying great attention to grammar and style.
