Welcome to a brief introduction to Ancient Greek Classics! Below, you can read other blogger’s and reader’s thoughts on ancient works and you can sign up for the upcoming (late January) Classics Circuit tour.
Although dates are tentative, the Ancient Greek tour will probably begin Monday, January 24, 2011 and will run for between five days (ending January 28) and ten days (ending February 4), depending on the number of people who join the tour.
For this tour, you can read and write about anything written in Ancient Greece before 338 B.C.E., which was when Philip of Macedon had overtaken all the Greek city states and the Hellenistic age begins. (See note below about flexibility. We aren’t picky.) Below, I have information about epic poets, lyric poetry, Greek tragedy, Greek comedy, historians and philosophers.
About the Classics Circuit: The Classics Circuit: Ancient Greek Classics Tour is a blog tour of Ancient Greek classics. Participants select a work to read and let us know of the selection. Via email, we will assign participants a day to post about the work. On the assigned days, participants post about the work on their blogs. Participants write in their own style, for whatever length of post they’d like. After the tour is over, we will post on our site a list of permalinks to all those who participated in the tour. Note that you must have a blog to participate. Only one day will be included on the tour schedule and only one post linked to on the permalink post, although bloggers may post as many times as they want during the tour.
Get ideas of what to read after the jump.
Sign up is currently closed. If you’d still like to participate in this tour, please send an email to rebecca[at]rebeccareid[dot]com with the following information: your blog name and url, the work you’d like to read for the tour, and any date preferences.
