CLLA 201
Intermediate Latin: The Late Republic Fall 2024
Division I

Class Details

This course aims to strengthen skills gained in previous study. In order to develop greater fluency and familiarity with classical Latin, we will read, translate, and analyze Cicero’s Pro Caelio and selected short poems of Catullus. Both authors are brilliant stylists, though each writes in a very different mode. Taken together, these texts offer an excellent introduction to the expressive capacity of Latin in prose and verse. They also open up intriguing overlapping perspectives on the social, sexual, and political mores of late Republican Rome. We will consider the cultural context and implications of these texts as time permits.
