CLASSICS 217: Western Receptions of Classical Latin Literature: Epic, Lyric, Elegy, Pastoral, Novel

This lecture class aims to explore the later reception of some major texts of Latin poetry and fiction in later European literatures and intellectual cultures from the medieval period until now, predominantly English but occasionally some other European modern languages [English translations supplied]. There will be some orientation in reception studies and its theory. Reading expectations will be mainly literary texts, no more than 100 pages in English per week; the course will look at translations and history of scholarship as well as literary adaptations. Particular attention will be paid to issues of cultural tension and later transformation of classical material in different historical and intellectual environments. It should be of interest to students of English and comparative literature as well as classicists.

CLASSICS 329: Roman Spaces

How might we make sense of the physical environment in the Roman world? What are the most useful units by which to make sense of its parts? What is the character and impact of human interventions? We'll take a detailed but wide-ranging look at Mediterranean landscapes, emphasizing the period of Roman hegemony. Proceeding systematically, we will get the measure of each province triangulating ancient texts (Strabo, Pliny the elder, Pausanias) and documents; the archaeological record; and the landscape itself.

CLASSICS 339: Catullus: Textual Criticism and Literary Interpretation

This seminar will read much of the work of the major Latin poet Catullus (including some of the longer poems) from the perspective of textual criticism and literary interpretation: the two are necessarily closely bound up, and the minimal and imperfect nature of the Catullan textual transmission gives excellent opportunities to concentrate on trying to work out what the poet wrote and why, as well as analysing his work from a literary perspective. It will give orientation in the principles and practice of textual criticism as well as on Catullus and late republican Latin poetry. Metre will also figure. We will read up to 12 pages of Latin per week with some secondary literature. A good knowledge of Latin is required.

CLASSICS 346: Aristotle's Protrepticus and its Background (PHIL 315)

In this seminar, we shall read Aristotle's Protrepticus. This is an early work of Aristotle that attempts to turn the reader to a philosophic life and it is by far the least read of his works on ethics. It was only recovered in the 19th century and only in the past 15 years or so do we have a reliable text. Thus studies of it are very much underdeveloped. We shall also read as background some other protreptic works by Plato and the rhetorician Isocrates. 2 unit option is only for Philosophy PhD students beyond the second year.
