Description:
Latin poetry is the longest and most varied literary tradition of Europe, ranging from the epic of Ennius and Virgil, the erotic elegy of Ovid, the satire of Martial, through the medieval chants and drinking songs, to the modern poems of Milton, Rimbaud, and Baudelaire. This course, intended for both beginning and advanced Latin students, will move through this tradition with the goal of acquiring as much Latin as quickly, painlessly, and enjoyably as possible.
