We will read selections from all three of the major love elegists, Propertius, Tibullus and Ovid, as well as Sulpicia. Our focus will be on questions of genre, the representation of gender, violence, death, and the Augustan context. Although we will seek to cover the major trends in the secondary literature, one of our main aims will be to look for new directions for the study of Roman love elegy.
