CLASSICS 210: Latin Prose Composition

Latin Prose Composition pursues two goals: to help students consolidate their knowledge of Latin syntax by way of translating English sentences and (short) passages into Ciceronian Latin; and to help them appreciate differences in style by way of imitating the styles of different authors and periods, working within various subject-areas and genres. To these ends we will study selected grammatical problems, read (longer) passages in Latin (for the first half of the term, this reading will largely consist of Cicero¿s Pro Marcello), reserving particular attention for stylistics. Students will have to submit written translations from English into Latin every week; during the term¿s final third, they should expect to be working on longer compositions too (around 150 words in length).
