LATIN602-01Z Caesar (with Randall M Colaizzi)

This course will focus on selections from Julius Caesar's Commentarii, including selections from De Bello Gallico and De Bello Civile, interspersed with selections from the letters and works of Caesar's contemporaries and the later Roman historians. Examination of maps, photographs, and brief topical essays will provide the background necessary to understand Caesar's works and campaigns. Some emphasis will be laid on modern scholarship devoted to Caesar. Course goals include not only reading a significant portion of Caesar's extant works, but also gaining an appreciation of his style as a writer, along with a understanding of his place in Roman history. Teachers enrolled in the course should expect to gain a good background for teaching Caesar in the AP curriculum.
