Roman Roads Reader: Drama and Lyric covers some of the Lyric poets, as well as some epic poetry from ancient Greece. This selection of texts includes: Euripides' The Medea and The Trojan Women, Poems of Sappho, Odes of Pindar, Idylls of Theocratus, The Works and Days of Hesiod, The Fall of Troy from Quintus of Smyrna, and The Argonautica from Apollonius of Rhodes. Roman Roads Reader: Drama and Lyric was designed to compliment the video course Greeks: Drama and Lyric, part of the "Old Western Culture" series by Roman Roads Media. Based on the Great Books of western civilization, "Old Western Culture" guides students through the literature, history, theology, and philosophy of the West, and does so from a Christian perspective. The course instructor, Wes Callihan, has studied and taught the Great Books for nearly 30 years.
