Advanced Topics in Latin (H): Intro to Literature

Biography

The purpose of this course is to expose students to more authentic and unabridged Latin literature. Each year, the readings follow the interests of the students in the class. In recent history we have read works by Horace, Seneca, Ovid, Vergil, Caesar, Plautus, Cicero, Catullus, Pliny the Younger, and Livy. Through the literature, we will examine the history and culture of the Romans. Additionally, we often take up the challenge of composing basic stories of our own in Latin!

This course is a prerequisite for the thematic AT Latin course, unless otherwise approved by a Latin teacher.
