The purpose of this course is to expose students to more authentic and unabridged Latin literature beyond the AP syllabus. We usually begin with selections of Ovid’s Metamorphoses, but, each year, the readings follow the interests of the students in the class. In recent history we have read works by Plautus, Cicero, Suetonius, Catullus, Livy, Pliny the Younger and even Tacitus. We often take the challenge to write Latin elegiac couplets in the style of Ovid. * This class may be taught in conjunction with Advanced Latin Literature I with a rotating syllabus. Note: This course has an honors option. Prerequisites: With from their current instructor.
