CLSL-102 Latin Poetry
Spring for 2015-2016
  • Osgood, Josiah
  • An introduction to Latin poetry for students who have completed the
    intermediate level in the language. Students read selections from the
    second half of Vergil’s /Aeneid/, focusing on the stories of the young
    Trojans and Italians who die in the wars of their fathers. While these
    tales introduce important themes of the poem, the class primarily aims
    to teach students how to read and translate Latin verse. There will be
    special emphasis on learning the idiosyncrasies of poetic language and
    mastering Vergil’s meter, the dactylic hexameter.
    Credits: 3
