Latin of the Late Roman Republic


Course designed to study literature of the Roman Republic's final years, prior to transition to imperial rule. Texts will offer primary evidence of how Roman citizens viewed the radical changes taking place in Republican Rome, and how these created the social 'stress fractures' that led to prolonged, bloody civil war, and finally to one-man rule. Readings could include such authors as Catullus, Cicero, Sallust, Caesar, Varro. Prerequisite: Latin 101, 102, 203, and 204 or the equivalent.
