In this course we will sample representative examples from a range of Horace's poems, including his SATIRES, ODES, EPISTLES, and ART OF POETRY. Horace is a brilliant exponent of the Latin language, capable of a range of tones, from beautiful and subtle lyric to high comedy, with a flair for the human scale, a taste for deflating the self-important, and an elusive strain of undogmatic moral seriousness. In addition to reading some of the poems, students will also read select examples of modern criticism. As a final group project, students will each prepare a paper on a poem or poems of Horace that will form the basis of a presentation: "An Evening with Quintus Horatius Flaccus: Horace in (Mainly) His Own Words."
