CLAS 3350 Catullus (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

The Roman poet Gaius Valerius Catullus offers a rare and tantalizing glimpse at the private lives of Roman elites at the end of the Republic. In this course we will examine his work and what it can show us about ancient Roman relationships — social and erotic — as well its place within the broader literary tradition. Readings will be in Latin.
