Fulfills the L&S breadth requirement in Arts & Literature and Historical Studies.
An introduction to the reading of Latin prose. The main aim of this course is to develop the student's proficiency in reading Republican prose. We will read selections from central prose authors including Cicero and Caesar, focusing on understanding the Latin grammar and improving confidence with translation, as well as analyzing specific social and literary aspects of these texts. We will also spend some time reviewing Latin forms and sentence structure (morphology and syntax), and improving our understanding of the language through English-to-Latin translation. Prerequisite is successful completion of an introductory grammar course (Latin 1 and 2 or the equivalent).
