This course centers on Tacitus and his contribution to the tradition of ancient biography. Our primary text is the Agricola, in which several literary genres (panegyric, funeral laudation, historical narrative, and ethnography) inform the author’s portrait of his father-in-law, a loyal imperial official and skilled military leader during the reign of Domitian. We explore how the author uses the life of Agricola and his accomplishments in Roman Britain to comment on imperial administration and military leadership during the early principate. Emphasis in the course is also given to Tacitus’ style and aspects of the Roman conquest of Britain.
