 LATN 402B 001Seminar2 Mon Wed Fri12:0013:00

Virgil's Aeneid Book 12. The closing book of Virgil's epic poem, the Aeneid (studied in Latin) and the narrative arc of the entire poem (studied in English). Virgil's hero Aeneas is forced to fight the indigenous peoples, and he is told that after his victory his Trojans will blend with the native Latins and that the city of Rome will arise from this fusion. Since medieval times the Aeneid has often been viewed by its elite male readership as a justification of imperial expansion, especially westward expansion, and of colonialism. This course will explore these themes and others in the final book of Virgil's epic. Cross-listed with LATN 502B. It is recommended that students have taken LATN 352 previously.
