CLAS-L 424 Silver Age Historians
Section 25152 / Franklin
This semester the course will focus on the Annales of Tacitus,
specifically Tacitus’ portrayal of Nero, the last of the Julio-
Claudians, although students will be asked to read the Annales in
their entirety in English translation, and we will initially look
also at his earlier works. We will examine the life and times of the
author, but emphasis will be on the text and the Latin itself, and
classes will be translation sessions.
