Latin 320 begins with prose texts (Cicero’s Catilinarian Orations, Sallust’s De Catilinae Coniuratione), then moves on to poetry (selections from Catullus and Lucretius). Students will read a variety of secondary sources on the history of the late Republic and Early Empire. They also will learn how to scan and read the Latin meters of the poems they’re reading, and will do some brief English-to-Latin translation exercises. Students can expect to read 60 to 100 lines per week.
