Course Description: Writing amidst the convulsive social and political changes of the Augustan age, Horace explored love, politics, and the idea of poetic immortality in some of the finest and subtlest Latin poems ever written. In this class, we will read a selection of his lyric poetry, with close attention to the relationship between form and meaning.

This course is aimed at students in their second year of studying Latin. Please consult the instructor if you have questions about placement.
