Latin teaches the skills of meticulous and effective analysis. It demands linguistic ability and interpretative sensitivity in the study of both the language and literature. Students develop ideas about human psychology, rhetoric, law, social issues and ethics along with a powerful linguistic training that encourages a high degree of sophistication in the use of English. It also gives the opportunity to study some cornerstone texts of Western literature in the original language.
The course tests knowledge of the language via both unseen translations and commentary and essay questions on prose and verse authors.
In the Lower Sixth topics include Ovid, Amores Book 3, which explores the gruesome vengeance enacted upon Pentheus for neglecting the god Bacchus, and Cicero’s dynamic speech, in support of Pompey the Great, that unwittingly contributed to the destruction of the Roman Republic.
In the Upper Sixth the set texts include Virgil’s famous and dramatic portrayal of the love affair between the Trojan hero Aeneas and the African queen Dido from his epic poem the Aeneid, and the historian Tacitus’ dramatic account of the final days of the Emperor Nero’s reign.
