Advanced Latin Composition
Days and Time:
The aims of this graduate-level class are:
- To develop facility in writing and sight-reading Latin prose through review of grammar and morphology.
- To exercise active knowledge of the language, i.e., an ability to use it, as opposed to the passive ability simply to recognize what one reads.
- To cultivate an awareness of differences in the style and diction of Latin prose writers in various genres and periods, as well as the ancient ideological values that governed the choice of any prose style.
