Catullus and Horace: Poets in a Landscape

A three-week summer institute for twenty-five school teachers to study the poetry of the 1st century BCE Roman authors Catullus and Horace in their literary and historical context.

This proposal is for a three-week summer Latin institute for twenty-five school teachers at the College of Notre Dame of Maryland, July 10-29, 2005. The focus will be on the poetry of Catullus and Horace, lyric poets of the late Republic and the Augustan Age of ancient Rome. Participants will study the poems of Catullus, Horace’s odes and his Ars Poetica and Carmen Saeculare and relevant literary criticism. Lectures on the history of this era, critical scholarship on the poetry and approaches to teaching these authors will be supplemented by seminars in translation and pedagogy and opportunity for individual research to be shared with other participants at various times during the institute.
