This course is intended for students who have completed Lingua Latina Ab Initio 1 or have a very basic knowledge of Latin. It will enable them to explore selected passages of Latin poetry and prose while confirming and developing the knowledge of grammar necessary to appreciate such texts. The aim of the course is to develop an ability to respond to language with intelligence and sensitivity – in particular the Latin Language in all its richness and beauty. Students, by the end of the course will have brushed against the great names in Roman literature – Virgil, Cicero, Catullus, Caesar, Ovid and tasted the sublime art of translating authors whose words have rendered them immortal. They would also have acquired the rudiments of a skill which can be put to very practical use, particularly in the local context.
