Intermediate-Advanced Latin Reading: Aeneid 8 - Aeneas in Wonderland

*NEW TIME* Thursday 7pm Eastern

Course DescriptionJ.R. Bacon titled his study of Book 8 of Vergil’s Aeneid “Aeneas in Wonderland” on account of the dreamlike visions Aeneas enjoys throughout the book. Aeneas meets the god of the river Tiber in a dream, visits the future site of Rome, learns the story of Hercules and Cacus, and receives a shield depicting the future scenes of Roman history. Briefly escaping tragedy and despair, he glories in the marvels of his new Italian homeland. We will translate passages from Book 8 selected from each of the several wondrous episodes Vergil depicts.
