We will read a book each from Ovid's Metamorphoses and Lucan's Civil War. Focus will be on the literary aspect of the texts as well as how each author engages with previous literary models, especially Virgil's Aeneid. Questions of grammar, syntax and historical context of the works discussed as necessary. Classics majors and minors must take course for a letter grade. May be repeated for credit.
