Course Description: 

This course is an introduction to aspects of the Latin of Vergil’s Aeneid. We will spend most of our time translating and discussing Vergil’s Latin.  We will give attention above all to grammar, but will also acquire facility with the dactylic hexameter and discuss issues of style and poetics.  We will read the entire poem in English translation, as well as a number of modern critical evaluations of the Aeneid, and we will give specific attention, on a daily basis, to literary and cultural issues.

Exercises include quizzes, a final examination, and a short (7-9 page) interpretive essay.
