Humorous, serious, philosophical, political: ancient Rome’s greatest lyric poets explore friendship, love, loss, immortality, Cleopatra and much more. Join us as we translate the timeless poetry of Catullus and Horace. Some prior study of Latin required. If your only contact with Latin was in high school, you will still be most welcome. So, leave your winter woes behind and carpe diem! Anyone who took Latin Poetry last winter, no worries, no repeats!  

Recommended Reading: Catullus and Horace: Selections from Their Lyric Poetry, trans. Andrew Aronson and Robert Boughner.  [Savvas Learning Company, 1989].  Please read the Introduction, pages 1-4 (in English).

Jamie Keller holds a Master's Degree and an A.B.D. from SUNY Albany in Ancient Greek.  She is a retired Latin teacher, and currently a docent and educational guide at the Norman Rockwell Museum.
