LATI 7070 - Fragmentary Roman Historians

This class reads the many fragments of Roman Republican historians and learns how to analyze them from three perspectives: linguistic (including textual problems); literary; and historical. Why did early Romans, many of them active statesmen and generals, write history? What themes are perceptible in their surviving fragments? What was the historical context of the author, and what was the historical contribution of his work?
