Description

This unit consolidates the knowledge of Latin acquired in LATN1601, LATN2621 or by advanced study of Latin at school. It involves both formal language study, including practice in unseen translation, and the close reading of a wide variety of shorter and extended extracts from Latin verse and prose texts. Increasing attention will be paid to the literary qualities, style, generic and socio-historical background of the texts, as well as to their grammar and syntax.
