Intermediate-Advanced Latin Reading: Ausonius, Mosella

Mon. 6pm Eastern

Course Description: This course reads Ausionius' Mosella, and is a continuation of the previous Telepaideia Ausionius sessions. In the poem, Ausonius describes the river Moselle and the surrounding countryside and habitation. Through this subject Ausonius touches on the problem of the representation of reality through language and the relationship between place, imperial power, and the role of the poet. In session, we will read the poem in Latin, render it into English as well as we can, and discuss whatever topics are of interest to the group. Our goal is detailed reading and understanding, and to have fun with this excellent poem. This course continues the summer course, though it is not necessary to have participated in the previous sessions to join the fall sessions. We will begin the fall sessions at line 45, though there will be a review of the earlier part of the poem.


Level: This course is intended for students with intermediate to advanced knowledge of Latin.
Textbook: Instructor will provide materials.
Sections capped at: 5 students. If the course is sold-out, please fill out this waiting-list form.
