CLSL-102 Latin Poetry
Spring for 2015-2016
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.
