Learning Objectives

The student is provided with a brief summary of the most relevant problems and historical developments of Latin literature, from the origins to II AD. He/she will get acquainted with crucial problems and personalities of Latin literature, and acquire basic methodologies of literary analysis, with a particular focus on comedy and elegy.

Program

The syllabus is twofold:

  • general part (PARTE ISTITUZIONALE)
  • CORSO MONOGRAFICO
  • Its first section is a general part (PARTE ISTITUZIONALE), where the students work independently, improving and consolidating their knowledge of Latin literature (genres, development and personalities) through the perusal of a handbook or companion on the topic. 
  • The second section (CORSO  MONOGRAFICO) is developed by the teacher, who will provide the students with:
    • a general survey on the dramatic production in Roman culture, including a history of Latin theatre
    • origins, patterns and characteristics of Latin comedy
    • the authors of the Latin comedy

    • reading and discussing excerpts from Pseudolus

    • general characters, origin and models of Latin elegy
    • reading and commentary of elegies of Propertius

Bridging Courses

No former knowledge of the topic is required; however, a good knowledge of Roman History is recommended.

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

  • The student will be asked a good knowledge of the history, problems, authors and themes of Latin literature.
  • The student will be asked to prove his capability to employ the specific set of knowledge, theory and logic of the subject. He will read and analyse a literary text in Latin language, and put it in the larger frame of its genre
