Reading Latin Literature (5) (OUDCE Course)

Ref: C3744632

Reading Latin Literature (4)' is aimed at students who have a pretty secure grasp of the fundamentals of the workings of Latin and who would like to read and enjoy some classic Roman texts in their original language. Our discussions will extend beyond the nuances of language into fascinating aspects of Roman society and history. Students should have a reasonable working knowledge of all the major grammatical and syntactical constructions in Latin, and the course will be conducted in a light-hearted yet academically rigorous way.
