Intermediate-Advanced Latin Reading: Catullus - Selected Poems

Wed. 6pm Eastern

Course Description: Catullus is not only one of the most popular surviving Roman poets, but his work displays the mastery of an astonishing range of styles, genres, and meters. In this course we will mainly read selected poems from the Polymetrics (poems 1-60) and the Elegiacs (poems 69-116), in which Catullus discusses aspects of his private life as well as his friends and acquaintances among the prominent and not-so-prominent figures of the day.  Time permitting, we might also look at some of the longer poems (61-68).


Level: This course is intended for students with intermediate to advanced reading knowledge of Latin.
Textbook: Daniel Garrison’s A Student’s Catullus or Robinson Ellis’ Commentary to Catullus (the latter available for free as a PDF).
Sections capped at: 5 students. If the course is sold-out, please fill out this waiting-list form.
