Read Latin literature in the original language! This year our text will be selections from Petronius’ Satyricon, a comic novel about the misadventures of several disreputable characters, showing the decadent life on the Bay of Naples during the Age of Nero. 21L.613 serves as a bridge for students with one semester or more of formal Latin training (Latin 1/2, high school Latin, or equivalent) between the study of Latin grammar and vocabulary and the reading of Latin authors. 21L.614 starts Oct 17th and offers more of a challenge for advanced readers. They run simultaneously and each may be repeated once for credit.
