The goal of this course is to strengthen your reading and sight-translation skills in both Latin prose and poetry through the mastery of advanced grammatical structures and sensitivity to word-order issues, meter and style. We will read and discuss excerpts from Ovid and Cicero. 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 and we will study Cicero’s rhetorical virtuosity and indebtedness to Greek oratory.

Course Requirements:

Grading is based upon class participation, vocabulary and review quizzes, sight quizzes and a final project.

Intended Audience:

4th semester proficiency in Latin, placement students, graduate students

Class Format:
