CLASSICS 101L: Advanced Latin: Livy

Books I-V of Livy's monumental History of Rome blend myth, legend, and historical truth to recount the period 'from the founding of the city' to the Gallic Sack in 390/387 BCE. In this course, we will examine large sections of Book I concerning the brothers Romulus and Remus, the kings of the Roman monarchy, and the fall of the Tarquins, as well as key episodes from Books II-V: the foundation of the Republic, the conflict of the orders, and Rome's wars with Latins, Etruscans, and Celts. Concurrently, we will discuss the purpose of Livy's composition, its value as a historical source, the circumstances of its production, and the narrative strategies employed by Livy. The course aims to improve reading fluency, and we will review grammar and vocabulary as necessary. Classics majors and minors must take for a letter grade and may repeat for degree credit with advance approval from the Director of Undergraduate Studies.
