  • Dying in the Republic

    For those who witnessed the bloody violence and brutal butchering of the late Republic, death and dying were everywhere. What did these Romans believe happened to the dead? Was there an afterlife? This course explores two texts (Virgil and Cicero) that deal with visions from and of the spheres beyond the realm of the living. Discussion of supplementary material from other authors, religious studies, and material evidence further develop our notions of what it meant to die in the Republic.

  • Renaissance Latin Poetry

    This course will cover a diverse selection from the Latin poetry of the Renaissance (fourteenth through seventeenth centuries) in the original language. Epic, lyric, pastoral, and other forms will be on our reading list; we will go over the readings in class with an eye to linguistic questions as well as to literary and cultural questions and to the poets' rethinking and reshaping of the Classical past for present concerns. This course is open to students who have had at least two years of Latin or the equivalent.

  • Allusion and Its Discontents

    Our concern is both the history and future of the study of allusion in Latin literature. We will explore the implications of the different terms and perspectives associated with our subject: most obviously, allusion and intertextuality, plus interpretative approaches that privilege authorial control and initiative, textual intentions, or readerly reception. Attention will be paid to negotiations not only between poetical works but also between prose works and between prose and poetry. We will also investigate the relationship between allusion and other types of textual appropriation, including translations, adaptations, and direct quotations. A wide variety of Latin texts will be read.
