CLA 127 — The Aeneid
This is the final course in a three-year sequence on ancient epic poetry during which we have studied the Iliad, then the Odyssey, and now will confront the Aeneid. However, the earlier courses are not in any way required prerequisites for this course. This will certainly be a “first” experience with ancient epic poetry for many in the course.
