Course Description: 

In this class we will focus on the odes of Horace and the short poems of Catullus, discussing the ways this poetry engages both the Greco-Roman literary tradition and its own contemporary social context.  Class time will include practice in translating, scansion and grammar analysis, along with analysis of the poetry in a broader context.  We will also read some short examples of modern criticism and response to this poetry.  There will be regular translation quizzes (both prepared and at sight), a midterm, a final exam, and at least two writing assignments (the longest of which will be in the 8-10 pp. range).
