We will read extracts from Euripides' Medea examining the techniques of Ancient Greek drama in its social and cultural contexts. We will also read extracts from Plato's Crito as an example of Socratic influence on Western philosophy.

If you are a new WEA Student and enrol into a language class and subsequently find that you are at the wrong level (whether too high or too low), you are permitted to transfer into another more suitable class at no additional cost, provided that the request is made within the first two classes and is in writing from your tutor directly to the Education Manager. After that point, an administration fee of $30 will apply.
