In this course students study Vergil's Aeneid, an epic poem about a hero's struggle to establish a new kingdom after the fall of Troy. They read selections from Books I through XII in Latin and the entire poem in English. The course examines the poem's literary, stylistic, and cultural dimensions and prepares students for the Advanced Placement exam in Vergil. Students also take advantage of pertinent online information, such as related art, essays, and critiques.
As of the 2013-2014 school year, the Advanced Placement Latin course has changed. We now read selections from Vergil's Aeneid for one part of the year, and selections from Caesar's Commentaries on the Gallic War for the other part of the year. The theme of leadership is explored through both authors' works.
