History of Latin Literature

This course is a survey of Latin literature by genre and chronology from the earliest Latin writing through the reign of Hadrian. Students will read selections of Latin prose and poetry from the works of all major authors and will evaluate the structure and content of each work within its historical and literary contexts. The goals of the course are to give students a strong foundation in the development and evolution of Latin literature and to prepare them for subject area examinations for prospective teachers of Latin such as Praxis and MTEL.
