Learning Objectives

Students will approach poems about the same topos of the descent to the underworld treated by different authors from different ages. Thanks to the analysis of a wide anthology of poems, students will learn how to recognize some of the recurring features of poetic Latin and will become aware of some of the key elements that made this language process develop. 

Program

The course will be focused on the topos of the descent to the underworld in Latin poetry, starting from the Virgilian Georgics and Aeneid, where the descent to Hades by Orpheus and Aeneas is described. Then the study will move on to Ovid, Lucan, Silius Italicus, Claudian and other authors who imitated or revised this model. 

Teaching Material

The teaching material prepared by the lecturer in addition to recommended textbooks (such as for instance slides, lecture notes, exercises, bibliography) and communications from the lecturer specific to the course can be found inside the Moodle platform › blended.uniurb.it

Supporting Activities

The course will host seminars about the reception of the descent to the underworld theme in modern and contemporary culture and metric tutorials about the dactylic hexameter.
