CLSL 310 - Vergil
Students will read all 12 books of the Aeneid, one of the great masterpieces of Latin literature, over the semester.  The pace of the course will roughly be one book per week; we will translate some of the material each class, and there will be quizzes on material that is not covered in class.  There will also be extensive discussion about Vergilian meter, diction and style, and the way in which the these aspects contribute to a broader understanding of the complexities of the work as whole.  Perhaps most importantly, by reading the poem in a linear fashion without interruption, students will gain a better sense of the structure and themes of the poem.
