it'd be interesting to know what everyone here is working through at the moment, and why you've chosen those particular texts
as well as working through pharr with the beginners mailing list here, i'm working through poets from the different greek dialects, to get comfortable in each.
pindar: working through the olympians. i've scanned the lot using the schemas in the French Academy's Pindar volumes and am reading olympian 1, having started with Professor Harris' intro to Olympian 1.
sophocles: reading aias. i've scanned the choral passages from an old prosody book, and i'm slowly scanning the iambic tri, and reading the text using perseus to help with any grammar probs.
aeschylus: reading persai. i've just started and i love the metre, particularly the short-short-long-long passages a few pages into it. i'm still reading the anapaestic intro.
sappho: reading all the relatively complete fragments: there's only a few of them. i've used will's aoidoi text of sappho 1, and the loeb versions for fragments 2 and the other complete ones: sappho is still my fav poet, her dialect is beautiful.
aristophanes: reading the knights. it's hilarious: the start is so disgusting. i'm only a few pages into it.
those are my poets. i'm also reading herodotus: i've done a chunk of the beginning: just because it's easyish greek. and then the philosophers which is my main long-term interest: i'm reading plato's parmenides and aristotle's metaphysics and topics: i'm a fair way through each of these.
i've got lots of other books on my bookshelf which i'm not working through: the ones i've listed above each get taken down at least a few times a week.
how about you guys? cheers, chad.
