Aims

Students who have taken CLA1012, and wish to continue with Latin, may take this module. You will prepare the translation of the prescribed selections from one or more prose texts (Semester 1) and of a verse text (Semester 2). Our class work will consist of a mixture of translation of these selections, and of unseen translation of prose and verse texts similar to the prose and verse selections and of practice commentary on the prescribed texts.

The aim of this module is to develop students' ability to translate, understand and critically analyse and appreciate a range of Latin texts, both seen and unseen, prose and verse, and of a linguistic and intellectual level appropriate for Level 2.
