Ovid, Metamorphoses

Our exploration of Ovid's captivating poem of changes will alternate intensive analysis of selected episodes read in Latin with "bird's-eye" views of larger swathes read in translation.  Topics will include self-reflexivity and intertextuality; characters as narrators, the risks and pleasures of story-telling; artworks inside and beyond the poem; and the Augustan context.

Requirements:  c. 150-250 lines of Latin/week; 2 mini-essays; midterm exam; final exam; final essay (5-8 pp.).
