Prerequisite: Advanced Latin: Rhetoric and Epic Literature or equivalent
Taught by: Canterbury School
This course will delve into both the prose and poetry of Roman authors. Students will translate and analyze Latin in the original, with an emphasis placed on morphology, syntax, literary devices, and style, and a contextual study of the literature’s deeper meaning. Authors will vary based on student interest but will generally revolve around the core of Catullus, Seneca the Younger, Cicero, Vergil, Ovid, Livy, Sallust, Caesar, and Horace. The instructor is, however, willing to read other authors based on student interest and commitment.
