Course Description: 

This course offers an exploration of the literature, history, and society of the ancient Romans. We’ll be reading parts of a wide variety of works dating from a period that extends from the early second century BCE to the mid-second century CE: comedies by Plautus; histories by Sallust, Livy, and Tacitus; speeches and letters by Cicero; epic poems by Vergil and Ovid; and novels by Petronius and Apuleius. Our investigation of these works within their historical and cultural context will leave us with an enhanced sense of some important and exciting aspects of Roman civilization. Several short response papers, one 5-6 page essay, midterm, final. Participation in discussion sections is an important part of this class.
