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 that 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 about placement. On-line††
