This course is a comprehensive introduction to Vergil’s Aeneid. Students will develop their ability to read and translate the Latin text of the poem, while at the same time exploring the major interpretive issues surrounding the definitive Roman epic. Through a combination of close reading and large-scale analysis, we will investigate the poem’s literary, social, and political dimensions with special attention to Vergil’s consummate poetic craftsmanship.
