The poetry of Gaius Valerius Catullus (ca. 84 BC – 54 BC) continues to enjoy tremendous popularity. His short lyric poems and epigrams in the elegiac meter are charged with a sense of intimacy, intensity and immediacy that draw readers into a world of tumultuous emotional experience. His longer, non-lyric poetry explores complex themes of identity, personal and family relationships, the ethos of the heroic age and the art of translation, among others. We will read, analyze and discuss as much of Catullus's poetry as we can during the term. Our goals are: to gain an historical appreciation of Catullus's Latin within the traditions of Latin poetic diction; to master the poet's metrical forms; and to engage with the scholarly interpretation of his poetry.

Prerequisite(s): PREQ: LATIN 1300 or 1302

This course is offered infrequently.
