In this course we will read the poetry of Catullus and Horace. We’ll consider such issues as poetic voice and persona, genre, style, meter, and relationship to Greek sources, as well as the many, diverse links between the poems and their Roman social, cultural, and political contexts. We’ll also examine Horace as Catullus’ successor and ask what he owes and how he responds to his poetic predecessor. Midterm, final, final paper
