This course will emphasize the development of Roman elegy as a genre during the Augustan period, and will consider a range of literary topics related to elegy, including poetic voice and persona, fictionality, style, meter, intertextuality, and generic tropes, as well as the political, social, and cultural context(s) for these poems.
