CLASSICS 102L: Advanced Latin: Horace, Odes (CLASSICS 209L)

In this course we will read Horace's Odes (1-3), a quintessential work of Augustan era lyric poetry which is among the most influential in all of Latin literature. This will be done through focused readings and regular group discussions on specific thematic points, in particular Horace's biography and relationships, use of meter, myth, and political events, and his lyrical style. In addition to reading the Odes, we will also survey other works by Horace, including select poems from his Satires and Epistles. The major objective of this course is to strengthen students' Latin reading skills, in particular matters of grammar and ability to efficiently translate Latin at a high level. Other learning objectives include: understanding the historical context within which the Odes was written; identifying the social, economic, and political entanglements which fashioned Augustan era art and literature; and appreciating Horace's influence on lyric poetry in antiquity and today. Classics majors and minors must take course for letter grade. May be repeated for credit with advance approval from the Director of Undergraduate Studies.
