New Course Description:

Latin 441 will read select works by Cicero, concentrating on his de Republica (54 BCE). We’ll read most of the dialogue in Latin, including the famous “Dream of Scipio” in the final, sixth book. We focus on the theories and realities of Roman statehood and the constitution, including the much-studied “mixed constitution” of antiquity, of which Cicero is one exponent.

We’ll read de Republica in light of Cicero’s other works of the 50s and later (including de Legibus/The Laws), the Platonic tradition of dialogue to which he responds in creative ways, and subsequent conceptions of constitutions and civic governance. We’ll also consider what kind of literature this dialogue is, asking questions about the interrelationship of argument, style, and the multiplicity of voices and views in a semi-fictional prose work.
