Ancient Greek Authors and Literature


Summary: This is a project that I've worked on for longer than usual and it covers six authors based on their genre. These are: Plato (philosophy), Aeschylus (Tragedy), Sophocles (Tragedy), Euripides (Tragedy), Herodotus (History) and Thucydides (History). Each one is described along with his most famous writings. This video covers all the content related to Authors and Literature necessary for the National Greek Exam.
