Latin Panegyric: Praise and Blame in Latin Letters and Life


Readings in the peculiarly Roman tradition of praise for public figures, which often includes censure of others. Authors and works might include Cicero, Pliny the Younger, and the XII Panegyrici Latini, and readings will be in both prose and poetry. Attention will be paid to genre and to the widely varied historical contexts of our readings.
