LATN3602 - Virgil's Aeneid

Semester 2, 2013  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Anne Isabella Rogerson

Description

Virgil's Aeneid is the central text of Roman civilization and arguably of Western culture. This unit will examine its stylistic, literary and narrative technique, and its historical and political context, through the reading of either an entire book or selected passages from the whole epic. It is particularly suitable for students who are in their second or third year of Latin, but will be of interest, profit and enjoyment to anyone interested in Latin poetry.
