question on next Greek read

Postby haeesh » Sun Jun 30, 2013 5:43 pm

Hi everyone,
I'm new to the list and have been studying on my own for 2 years. Just finished Lysias I. A big reader of the NT and LXX too. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for the next read after Lysias in Attic Greek. Looked at Xenophon; but just not that into military stuff.
Also, I have yet to find a "list" that explains common ancient greek idioms such as: oios t' eimi (to be able or possible). Does anyone know of one?
Thanks for your help
Don

χαῖρε, φίλε Δον! ὁ μὲν Πλάτων λίαν καλὸς ποιήτης ἐστιν, ἀλλὰ πάνυ δύσκολος. συμβουλεύω οὖν ταῦτα τὰ βιβλία ἀναγινώσκειν.

δεῖ ἡμᾶς ἀναγινώσκειν εὐκόπους γράφας. ἀνάγνωθι οὖν τοῦτο

ὦ φίλε Δον, θέλω δή σε ἐρρῶσθαι!
I am writing in Ancient Greek not because I know Greek well, but because I hope that it will improve my fluency in reading. I got the idea for this from Adrianus over on the Latin forum here at Textkit.

Plato's Apology might also be a good text to read next. It's not too difficult--we read it in the second semester of first-year Greek or the first semester of second-year Greek.

You can download an excellent 19th century student edition with notes and vocabulary on this site here: http://www.textkit.com/learn/ID/119/author_id/49/, or you could order a used hard copy at reasonable cost on Abebooks: http://www.abebooks.com/servlet/SearchResults?an=plato&bi=0&bx=off&ds=30&kn=dyer+seymour&recentlyadded=all&sortby=17&sts=t&tn=apology&x=0&y=0 .
