Selecting a text from among the works of Virgil, Horace, Propertius, Tibullus and Ovid, students will focus on issues such as the nature of the poetry book at this period; the structure of the collection; the context for the production and circulation of poetry in the Augustan period; and the style, genre and thematic content of the text. On completion of the subject, students should have reached an acceptable standard in translating and interpreting the selected text.
