In this course we will focus on reading in Latin extensive selections from Vergil’s Aeneid. Class time will be spent mostly reading and discussing the Latin text, though there will also be time for discussion of broader literary and historical issues that contribute to our understanding of the poem. There will be several translation quizzes, some short (2-5 pp.) writing assignments, a midterm and a final exam. NB: This course will be taught as a room-share with Latin 119; although the two classes will usually meet together, each class will have its own appropriate assignments and assessments.
