LATIN 406 TOPICS IN LATIN POETRY *3 (3-0-0)

A1 Seneca’s Thyestes
Seneca's Thyestes is a tale of the bloody vengeance wrecked upon Thyestes by his brother Atreus, who slaughters his nephews as a feast for Thyestes. Seneca's masterpiece is not only a brilliant retelling of the myth of the house of Atreus but also Seneca's commentary on Neronian Rome and the House of Augustus. We will read the Thyestes, paying close attention to the nature of Senecan tragedy, the influence of Stoic philosophy and the declamatory schools on Seneca's poetry, and Seneca's growing unease with Nero. Taught in conjunction with LATIN 506 A1.

LATIN 410 TOPICS IN LATIN PROSE *3 (3-0-0)

B1 Latin Authors I
Advanced undergraduate/graduate reading course on Cicero. We will be reading selections from the Pro Murena, concentrating on Cicero's prose style, which was a model for Latinists for 1500 years, and his methods of argumentation, with attention to the complex historical background of the Catilinarian conspiracy. The speech features Cicero at his wittiest and most eloquent, defending a political ally against charges of bribery in the midst of a political crisis. Along the way, he makes fun of Cato and philosophy; parodies lawyers; explains why buying elections is a great Roman tradition; raises the specter of anarchy; and, finally, leaves his audience crying.Taught in conjunction with LATIN 510 B1.
