Professor of Classical Studies
Professor Baechle has taught at Hanover since 2001. He is most drawn to ancient literature but is fascinated by almost all aspects of ancient culture. He teaches Greek and Latin language and literature, as well as mythology, cultural history, and literature in translation. His research has focused on the poetic language of Greek tragedy, and he has just finished a textbook introducing tragedy and tragic Greek to students who have not studied tragedy as a distinct kind of theater and who have not read yet gotten the chance to read and appreciate tragic poetry.
