I would like to have Greek, mainly for philosophy but eventually tragedy and poetry. I am hoping to find a textbook that will prepare me for the Fragments collected by Diels, and the works of Plato.
I am considering using Hensen and Quinn's Greek: An Intensive Course or Mastronarde's Introduction to Attic Greek. I have read about Beetham's Learning Greek with Plato, but cannot locate an affordable copy (sells for 100s of dollars)--any comments on this text, how it compares to the other two textbooks, and its availability would be appreciated.
Anyone with experience with these books, please feel free to comment. It will be self-study, but I do have experience using Moreland and Fleischer on my own (with the internet's assistance on more than one occasion!).
