This is a fast-paced reading course for graduate students and advanced undergraduates, designed to improve speed and accuracy in Latin translation. We will read a variety of texts, both prose and poetry, all of which focus on representing life in the city or the country, and sometimes the contrast between the two. We will spend several weeks each reading portions of Cicero’s speeches, Horace’s Satires II and selected letters by Pliny. Depending on time and the interest of students in the class, we might look at some additional texts, for example excerpts from Virgil’s Georgics, Vitruvius, and Martial.

Course Requirements:

Two in-class exams and a final.

Intended Audience:

Graduate students and advanced undergraduates.

Class Format:

2 meetings/week.
