The readings in this course focus on Greek influences on Roman literature. We will explore Catullus' translations and transformations of Greek sources and ideas in his refined poetic corpus. We will contrast Catullus’s legacy to Cicero’s multi-faceted written legacy that is intricately intertwined with his political career. We will examine Cicero's dependence upon Greek models in his speech In Catilinam Oratio Prima. You will learn the strategies and skills needed to become a confident reader of both prose and poetry in Latin. You will learn about the time of transition and conflict that these two contemporary authors lived and worked in. You will also gain an understanding of complex grammar and a more refined sense of Latin rhetorical style that will enhance your ability to compose good prose in English as well.

Four review quizzes, two sight quizzes and a final paper.

Intended Audience:

Requires completion of four semesters of college Latin or the equivalent. For students coming out of LAT 231Honors, this course fulfills the final semester of the language requirement
