The subject will focus on further study of Latin grammar (morphology and syntax), such as the uses of the moods and tenses of the verb, further uses of the cases, and the introduction of the passive voice. We will also discuss further cultural phenomena (e.g. Cicero, Verres, oratory; the Roman system of government during the late Republic). This subject extends the skills developed in the first semester of Latin study. It brings students closer to reading Latin authors in the original language. It will be sharpen students philological and critical skills, which can usefully be applied in contexts other than classical study (e.g. in the study of other languages, of philosophy, literature and history).
