Course contents summary
Women in Horace's Odes.
In his erotic poems Horace addresses many women, not a single one, as it is the case of Catullus with Lesbia or of the elegists with their dominae. These women are sometimes sharply, sometimes light portrayed and while we meet some of them many times, others appears only once. The course focuses on the most significant characters, in deep connection with the themes and the structures of the poems
