How Fare the Classics?

Frederick T. Griffiths and Betty Rose Nagle discuss the teaching of classics in American colleges and universities. They focus on ways the canon of Greek and Roman literature has changed over time, the relevance of the classics to American social attitudes in the 1980s, and the story-telling aspect of teaching the classics.

At the time of this interview, Griffiths was professor of classics at Amherst College. Nagle, a Fellow at the National Humanities Center (1984-85), was professor of classics at Indiana University.

This edition of Soundings was conducted by Wayne J. Pond.
