|Semester 2 Credit Value:||20|
This module is normally taken as the natural sequel to CLA1011 taught in Semester 1. Both modules comprise a language and a literature component; the two elements are inseparable and reinforce each other. We will study a verse text (Vergil) and a prose text (Sallust), paying attention both to consolidating students' language skills and to literary analysis.
The overall aims of this module are to:
•further develop and consolidate knowledge of Latin grammar, vocabulary and style, to a level allowing students more independent study of Latin texts
•further develop students’ skills and knowledge required for the detailed study of a Latin prose or verse text.
Outline Of Syllabus
Of the 4 hours a week, two will be devoted to studying the grammar, language, style and content of a verse text (Vergil, Aeneid, following on from CLA1011), two to a prose text (normally Sallust's Catiline or Jugurtha).
