Event Details

  • Date:

Our Greek Tragedy Discussion Group will conclude their discussion of Aeschylus’ Oresteia on Saturday, December 16, from 4:00 – 5:30 PM. In addition to discussing impressions and ideas from the Oresteia as a whole, participants are encouraged to read Nietzsche’s The Birth of Tragedy (Walter Kaufmann translation) and/or Shakespeare’s Hamlet

The discussion will continue to be led by Ian Steller, a seasonal resident of the Upper Cape who has been coming to Woods Hole for several years. He teaches high school geometry and European history. Ian has also been leading classics reading groups at the Providence Athenaeum, and has generously offered to organize a similar undertaking at the Woods Hole Public Library.

The group will continue to meet on Saturdays in the new year, expanding their reading beyond Greek Tragedy into other categories of literature. A reading list is still being developed, but those who are interested are encouraged to register at the Library.
