Semester Offered: First Semester
Full Course
Credits: 4 credits
Attribute: 4HU, CD

This course explores the poetry of one of Rome’s premier authors, Ovid. We will read selections of Ovid’s erotic verse and stories from his Metamorphoses . Students will review advanced grammar concepts and put them to use in their translations of his elegiac and epic works. Come for the stories, stay for the double-entendres, urbane poetry, and exploration of this poet who, in the words of a contemporary, was “too witty for his own good” (and was exiled for it, gulp!).
