Pericles' Funeral Oration
Pericles and Philadelphia
Oedipus and the Sphinx
to be illustrated:
J's Lecture on Socrates
J's ILLUSTRATED TEXTS
These pages were written
especially as supplements to Temple University's IH 51 syllabus, but even if you are not a
Temple student, you may find them useful.
Think of these pages
as illustrated notes that provide a context for the readings . . . some, like the
Illustrated Plato's Apology, actually follow the text along section by section.
Others, like the Illustrated Pericles' Funeral Oration, offer a broader context
to understand Pericles' ideas. The Illustrated Aeschylus' Oresteia accomplishes
two things: it provides photographic notes to accompany the text and explains obscure
references in the poetry, and it follows in Orestes' footsteps so we can see the shift in
settings from play to play from Mycenae to Delphi to Athens - the Orestes' Trek. These
turned out to be a lot of fun to write and illustrate. Enjoy!
