Course Description: J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit has been translated into Latin. We will use Mark Walker’s translation (HarperCollins, 2012), comparing it to the original fantasy classic in English. The course offers Tolkien fans the opportunity to expand their Latin vocabulary and improve their knowledge of Latin grammar while reading a familiar favorite.
Level: This course is intended for students with intermediate to advanced knowledge of Latin.
Textbook: Hobbitus Ille: The Latin Hobbit, J.R.R. Tolkien (translated by Mark Walker), HarperCollins, 2012. (A copy of Tolkien's original English is also recommended, for the sake of comparison.)
