An introduction to Classical Latin, the language of Virgil, Catullus, Cicero, Tacitus, Livy, and, with some modifications, of much of Western literature through medieval times and the Renaissance. In this course, students with no previous knowledge of the language learn the grammar and syntax, and acquire a working vocabulary, of Latin. There will be frequent quizzes and drills, a mid-term and a final. The book will be supplemented by materials provided by the instructor. In Latin 102, the continuation of this course in the spring, students will be reading (and reciting) poems of Catullus and other short texts. Students with some knowledge of Latin, for example High School Latin, should see the instructor or Prof. Callanan about placement.

|Title||Intermediate Latin: Virgil, Aeneid 4|
We will be reading the fourth book of Virgil's Aeneid, the story of the love affair between Dido and Aeneas and its tragic end. We will be using an edition of the Latin text which contains extensive notes and commentary in English. If time allows, we will read some of Virgil's Eclogues as an introduction to a different genre and diction of the same poet. Students with extensive High School Latin should see the instructor or Prof. Callanan about placement.
