This course will examine how ancient Roman authors wrote their own versions of ancient myths. We will read a selection of texts in Latin from Vergil's Georgics and Ovid's Fasti, Heroides, and Metamorphoses, among others. We will visit mythical landscapes, hear from gods and mortals, and review Latin grammar, too. As we read these texts, we will consider issues of power dynamics, status, and gender in Rome, as well as practice what it means to engage in critical translation.
