CLSL-308-01 Advanced Latin Reading: Vergil's Eclogues and Georgics
Fall for 2014-2015
This course is for students whose Latin is already very advanced; admission is by permission only. Students will read all of Vergil’s Eclogues and Georgics in Latin, as well as several poems from the so-called Appendix Vergiliana. The focus of the class is not translation but on making sense of the poems as works of literature, and to this end, students will also read extensively from earlier and contemporary Greek (in translation) and Roman (in Latin) literature, including the idylls of Theocritus, neoteric Latin poetry, and other works. Students will be expected to become familiar with a range of secondary scholarship on the words being examined.
