The first semester of a yearlong introduction to Classical Latin. Our goals are: (1) to gain familiarity with morphology, syntax, and essential vocabulary; (2) to achieve sufficient fluency for selected  short readings from ancient authors in both prose and poetry; and (3)  to begin exploring the conventions of Latin literature and the  contexts, both cultural and historical, of ancient Rome. By the middle of the second semester, we will have reached a reading level adequate to begin study of a literary and/or historical text. No prerequisites; credit is awarded upon completion of both semesters.

The late Republic was a time of turmoil in Italy, resulting in extraordinary achievements in both prose and poetry.  We will read substantial amounts of Cicero, but also late republican poetry: Vergil  (Eclogues), Catullus, and others by popular demand.  We will consider the ways in which these men shaped the language in which the Empire would soon speak its own quite different truths.
