What else do I need to know? Is there anything I need to provide?

Course aim:
To promote enjoyment of reading classical Latin literature and to enable students to become independent readers of Latin
Course description:
Come and translate Latin in a friendly, supportive and stimulating group. We shall read a mixture of prose and verse texts. All students will have plenty of opportunities to translate, discuss and benefit from the wide range of insights provided by all the members of the class. Wherever possible we will consider the impact of Latin literature on modern European society and culture and its links to modern debates. Discussions are also intended to enable students to gain more from their own visits to museums and classical sites. Students will be invited to prepare some translation at home as well as translating unseen in class but the atmosphere is always relaxed and students can set their own pace for independent work. This course is for anyone who is confident with Latin and who wishes to gain first-hand experience of some of Europe's finest literature and its continued fascination for people today.
By the end of the course I will be able to:
1. translate Latin poetry and comment on its genre and artistry with reference to at least one text
2. translate Latin prose and comment on its genre and artistry with reference to at least one text
3. set Latin literature in the context of the world in which it was written
4. relate Latin literature to contemporary ideas and culture
