Intermediate Latin Poetry
This course is a study of Latin poetry in the original. We will read a selection of excerpts from some of Rome’s finest poets: Catullus, Virgil’s Aeneid, and Ovid’s Amores. As we explore poems that reveal aspects of life, love, and politics at the end of the Roman Republic and dawn of the Empire, we will focus on the historical, literary, and cultural contexts of these works and their respective authors. This course, along with LATN101, LATN102, and LATN201, fulfills the foreign language requirement of the College of Arts and Sciences.
