LT 385 - Vergil's Gentler Muse: The Eclogues and Georgics

(3.00 cr.)

Before Vergil sang of arms and the man, he composed the Eclogues and Georgics-poems no less masterful than the Aeneid, and equally influential within Western literature. Through select readings from these works, students examine Vergil's depiction of country life and love; the struggle to lead a good life in a harsh world; and the relations between man, nature, and society. These poems are also explored as a philosophical response to recent political crises in Rome.

Prerequisite: LT 104   or equivalent.
