Class description

In spring 2009, this reading course will sample some representative moments in the medieval and early modern reception of verse texts in the classical Latin canon, with especial attention to poetic allusion, and to continuity and change in genre. For the most part, the course will proceed by reading paired passages of classical and of medieval or neo-Latin verse; some vernacular verse may be included too (either in English, or translated into English).
