Course Description

This course is designed to cover the second-year sequence in Latin within one semester, and thus prepare students for upper division classes the following semester. It will emphasize review of syntactical principles and the acquisition of rapid reading ability through the study of Latin texts, both prose and verse. The prose will be Cicero's First Speech Against Catiline. The poetry readings will be drawn from Vergil's Aeneid. Stress will be placed on understanding and appreciation of the formal structure of the Latin language; also, you will learn to scan and read Latin hexameters out loud.
