About the Event

This reading group will explore the roots of modern horror fiction in ancient Greek and Latin literature, specifically in ancient tragedy and epic poetry. Questions we will discuss include: How much of what scared people in antiquity still spooks us today? How did ancient authors understand the appeal of frightening art? What can the horror fiction of the past teach us about ancient cultures? And what does its continuing relevance tell us about our own?
