Latin Poetry of the Empire: Lucan and Post Virgilian Epic

CLA 538

Info tab content
This course studies Lucan's historical epic in its Neronian context and in relation to the preceding literary tradition, not only epic, but also historiographic and declamatory, and considers the poem's influence and reception. We focus on the treatment of civil war, religion and the supernatural, and the relationship between tradition and contemporary relevance.
