Constructing Masculinity and Identity in Roman Elegy
LAT 360
Fall 2021
Section: 01  

This course will explore the ways in which Roman elegists used the genre of their poetry to construct a literary alternative to Roman masculinity and mores. Propertius, Tibullus, and Ovid each developed a masculine persona that rejected career politics and militarism in favor of the battlefields of love, creating a culture war between the status quo and a new Roman masculinity. The course will include weekly translation and secondary readings.
