The purpose of this course is twofold. Our first objective will be to obtain greater proficiency in reading Latin. Through primary readings in their original Latin, students will increase their knowledge of vocabulary, grammar, and syntax. Our second objective will be to read Vergil's Aeneid with a critical eye. What is epic? What is Rome's answer to Homer trying to accomplish? We will consider the political implications of the Aeneid. In addition to close study of selections in Latin, we will read the entire work in English.
