This is a continuation from Latin Advanced 1. The closeness of inspection in reading Latin fosters precision in the use of words. It also provides a model for careful reading and writing of English. Each meeting will look at some aspects of Latin Grammar and literature by examining two Latin writers, one in prose, the other in verse. The texts will also involve examined in their cultural and social context.


  • Online


  • Cicero In Catilinam I-IV, Edited with Introduction, notes and vocabulary by J.F. Stout, Bristol Classical Press, 2009.
  • Vergil, Aeneid 2 edited by R.H. Jordon, Bristol Classical Texts 1989

Both texts can be found online at with vocabulary and commentary


By the end of this course, students should be able to:

  1. Develop, at an appropriate level, a competence in Latin.
  2. Read, understand, appreciate and make a personal response some of the literature in the original language.
  3. Acquire some understanding of the civilization within which the literature studied was produced.
  4. Develop a sensitive and an analytical approach to language by seeing English in relation to a language of very different structure and by observing the influence of the ancient language on our own.


If you are a new WEA Student and enrol into a language class and subsequently find that you are at the wrong level (whether too high or too low), you are permitted to transfer into another more suitable class at no additional cost, provided that the request is made within the first two classes and is in writing from your tutor directly to the Education Manager. After that point, an administration fee of $30 will apply.
