| ||The course follows the College Board's former curriculum definition for the Latin Literature course, using Catullus and Horace. (Catullus was required, Horace was selected from a list of options.) It is hence an introduction to Latin Lyric, emphasizing both linguistic and literary properties of the work. We will discuss the artistic and metrical problems, issues of textual transmission, and interpretive scholarship.
Note: This course follows the College Board's former AP Latin Literature Curriculum. There is no longer an exam offered in the field, but the lineup was a rich and rewarding one, and we will continue to provide it while there is demand for it. It provides very good background for intermediate to advanced level work in college Latin courses.
