|Summary||The main objective of Latin 2HA is to advance further the student's knowledge of the Latin language and to develop the ability to read independently in Latin with linguistic and literary understanding.
This course will focus on Latin grammar and syntax, unseen translation from Latin to English, and reading and interpretation of prescribed prose and verse texts. In lectures attention is paid to linguistic and literary aspects of the texts, to cultural and historical contexts, and to generic affiliations. In tutorials attention is paid to the honing of students' expertise in the reading and writing of Latin, and in literary and textual criticism to a more advanced level than Latin 1HA or 1HB.
