Descriptions of food and drink abound in ancient literature. This course will examine the role of food and banquets in a variety of works, from Aristophanes’ comedies to Horace’s Petronius’ Satyricon. We will consider actual evidence about dining practices, but our central emphasis will be on the representation of food in literature. Much more than mere sustenance, food has the potential to reveal one’s origins, status, personal taste and style. In addition to bi-weekly papers, each student will also investigate one practical feature of ancient dining (e.g., seating, food preparation, “china”) as preparation for an authentic banquet of our own at the end of term.
