This course treats in detail the first book of Livy’s monumental history of Rome, which traces the legendary founding and rise of Rome as a regional power among other Italian cities during the regal period. Encompassing a range of stories beginning with the wolf suckling Romulus and Remus and ending with the establishment of the Republic upon the overthrow of the tyrannical Tarquinius Superbus, Book I invites us to consider how Rome’s legendary past provides insight into Roman identity during the transition from the Republic to the Imperial Age, the time at which Livy composed his work.

Course Requirements:

Regular evidence-based writing assignments of varying length and type, with substantive revision. In-class discussion and writing workshops, including peer review. No exams.
