HCA210/310 Greek & Roman Epic

In the classical world epic poetry was not only the most prestigious literary form, but also a major medium for the examination of moral and political issues. This unit examines Homer's Iliad, the first work in the western tradition, Virgil's Aeneid, the central literary achievement of the Romans, Ovid's Metamorphoses, an extraordinary poem which encompasses the entire world of Graeco-Roman mythology, and Lucan's Pharsalia, a powerful denunciation of the Roman Imperial system.

HCA212/312 Gender in Greek & Roman Literature

Produced by two overwhelmingly patriarchal societies, the literatures of Greece and Rome present different constructions of gender, different from each other and different from our own. This unit examines such issues as the representation of male and female, sexual politics and the nature of desire in a number of major works of ancient literature.
