Reading the Aeneid: a workshop

The Song of Arms and a Man

For students of the Aeneid or people with a curiosity to learn more about it (and already know some Latin) this weekend offers you the chance to look at the poem as a whole. We'll be reading and discussing the texts from The Song of Arms and a Man premiered at The Ivor Gurney Hall in Gloucester on 9th June.

Stories in Latin
This course concentrates on the language, taking it step-by-step through the grammar and vocabulary. Follow several engaging stories, including why a young poet decided against a career in law, and what happened to Anna, Dido’s sister, after Aeneas left Africa. We’ll also be looking at Latin words at the root of English ones. A good follow-up to Latin for Beginners.


An introduction to Ancient Greece and Rome  
The histories of ancient Greece and Rome are inextricably linked - and also with our own.
See how the ancient languages have influenced English and how their cultures have had such an impact on the modern world.


Reading Latin verse

A chance to get close to the heart of Latin literature with this day on Latin poetry. We will look at the principles behind Latin metre, at different verse-forms (although principally the hexameter).


Latin for beginners
Spend a day on classical Latin, with a look at Latin words at the root of English ones. See how the language works, enjoy some ancient gossip, learn more about ancient writers, and hear their work read aloud.
