LAT 15 Literature and the Romans

This course introduces some new ways of thinking about reading and writing in the Roman world. Beginning with the physical history of ancient books and publication methods, we will proceed to examine typical tricks and strategies of Roman writers to inform, move, or amuse their readers. Readings are a mixture of poetry (e.g. Catullus, Vergil's Eclogues, short poems of Martial) and prose (e.g. Cicero's personal letters, biographical notices), supported by a structured vocabulary program and review of key grammatical concepts.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
