Usual Description

Readings from the elegists of late Republican and early Imperial Rome, with emphasis on Propertius, Tibullus, and Ovid. We will study the development of the elegiac genre in response to Greek lyric, and to Greek and Roman Epic. We will also study the development of the elegiac persona as an alternative form of masculine subjectivity during the reign of Augustus. Readings from recent scholarship on Roman subjectivity, elegy, and genre theory.
