CLA1012 : Intermediate Latin Language and Literature 2

Semesters
Semester 2 Credit Value: 20
ECTS Credits: 10.0

Aims

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).

Teaching Rationale And Relationship

language classes (as described above) are the best way to combine the imparting of knowledge (grammatical and other) with the hands-on training in linguistic and literary skills.
