The purpose of this course is to read large portions of Vergil's Aeneid in Latin. The course will focus on the last books of the poem and on the scholarly debate over its enigmatic closure. Our aim will be close, critical reading of the Latin text and discussion of linguistic, literary, and cultural problems. We will explore the various layers of meaning that the poem generates through its interplay with ancient and contemporary political, religious, and ideological contexts. Grading in the course will be based on a midterm, final and an 8-10 pp. term paper.
