Ashbourne’s A level Classical Civilisations Easter Revision courses run in morning or afternoon sessions over five days. The course is taught by our Classics specialist George Chaldezos. Students will also benefit from individual attention, which is a key feature of the Easter Revision programme at Ashbourne.
What is covered in the Easter Revision course?
Comic Drama in the Ancient World
How did the Aristophanes, Menander and Plautus portray the ancient world through their comic dramas? Students will examine the context in which the plays were produced and look at the techniques used to create comedy.
Virgil and the World of the Hero
Students get to experience the epic adventures in Virgil’s Aeneid and Homer’s Iliad and examine the world in which they are set and the role of the hero. The texts are read in translation.
