LAT 402 Golden Age Latin (3 credits)

The class will engage in daily translation, discussion, literary and metrical analysis of selections from Golden Age authors Virgil (Eclogues and Aeneid), Horace (Odes and Satires), and Ovid (Metamorphoses and Amores). We will explore the following topics: literary patronage, Augustan social and political policy reflected (both approved and critiqued) in the literature of the Augustan period, Alexandrian poetics, generic composition, and structural principles of Latin poetry. Fulfills the Art/Literature requirement of the GER/GEP.
