Fulfills the L & S breadth requirement in Arts and Literature.
In this course we will focus on reading in Latin extensive selections from Vergil’s Aeneid. Class time will spent mostly reading and discussing the Latin text, though there will also be time for discussion of broader literary and historical issues that contribute to our understanding of the poem. There will be several translation quizzes, some short (2-5 pp.) writing assignments, a midterm and a final exam.
