Overview

Virgil (70-19 BC) is known for his epic poem about the foundation of Rome and for two series of poems devoted to rural life. Together they have constituted, almost without pause from Virgil's own time to the present day, one of the greatest influences on European literature and civilization. Students are introduced to the poetry of Virgil through selections from the pastoral poetry of the Eclogues, and Georgics as well as the epic Aeneid. This course is open to students of Latin who already master the grammar and syntax of the language at an advanced level. All texts will be studied in the original language Virgil.
