So basically it would appear that I have a useless teacher who hasn't actually covered all that much in the course and I was wondering if anyone could maybe give me a run down of what each of the sections mean.
Literary context

  • Pliny's letters as a personal commentary on Roman life;
  • satire, its origins, purposes and modern examples;
  • humour;
  • the use of persona;
  • the choice of themes and examples;
  • the style and characteristic approach of each of the authors

Social and cultural context

  • the position of freedmen and slaves;
  • the relationship between patron and client;
  • living in the city of Rome and in the countryside;
  • foreigners;
  • the position of women and the family in society;
  • the effects of wealth, especially the nouveaux riches;
  • the position and power of the Emperor;
  • food and dinner parties;
  • religion and philosophy, such as Stoicism and Epicureanism

If anyone can help you will be my life saver and I will consider you the human equivalent of a god. Much like Heracles or Achilles or any of that lot.

I also desperately need help as I had to teach the course to myself and so I was wondering if anyone knew which quotes would be good to memorise for the exam! Thanks!
