LATN 202 - Intermediate Latin II: Hannibal


4 credits
In this course, we will study the life and career of the Carthaginian general Hannibal and his fight against the Romans in the Punic Wars by reading Cornelius Nepos’s biography of Hannibal and selections from Livy’s History of Rome. Students will improve their ability to read Latin prose by reading these texts in their original Latin language and will focus on the grammar, syntax, and literary style of the Roman authors. As we read, we will also reflect on the differences between historiography and biography, and how the two authors have chosen to represent one of Rome’s most famous foes.

Students will also read scholarly articles about Hannibal and understand how he has been viewed by critics over time
Prerequisites & Notes: LATN 102 or equivalent.
