Horace, ODES and EPODES
LAT 241
Spring 2011 not offered

In this course, through a close reading of Horace's lyric poetry, we will seek to understand the nature of Horatian lyric, its formal qualities and thematic preoccupations. I will encourage students to become aware of the critical methodologies that have been brought to bear on the ODES by selected readings in secondary literature. We will also consider the modern reception of these poems and the problems they present for a translator as a further attempt to understand their special qualities.
