Equids, real and imagined

Bronze Horse  c. 750 BCE
Bronze Horse c. 750 BCE

Horses, asses, mules and centaurs will be our focus this term. Xenophon will tell us what to look for when buying a young horse, and how to look after it: for advice about the diseases of horses we'll consult Aristotle. Among imagined equids we'll meet the weeping, talking steeds of Achilles and some centaurs. Equids as metaphor and image will be found in Aesop, in Semonides' Catalogue of Women, and at the last trumpet. There will also be some horse-play.
