Primary Instructor:

The goal of this course is to strengthen your reading and translation skills in both Latin prose and poetry through the mastery of advanced grammatical structures and sensitivity to word-order issues, meter and style. The readings in the course are organized around the topic of Greek influences upon Roman culture. We will explore the ways in which Ovid refashions the Greek models from which he draws inspiration in the Amores and Metamorphoses. Cicero openly declares his passion for the liberal arts in the defense speech for the Greek poet Archias and strives to surpass Demosthenes through his vitriolic rhetoric in the Catilinarian orations. By reading excerpts from both speeches you will become acquainted with the periodic style through Cicero's rhetorical virtuosity and indebtedness to Greek oratory. Grading in the course is based upon in-class translation performance, vocabulary quizzes, 2 exams, a sight translation final exam and a commentary project.
