Continued attention to grammar includes the introduction and development of a number of additional concepts as presented in The Oxford Latin Course: Part II and Part III.  Students will then study of the language, achievement, and historical significance of Vergil's epic Aeneid. They will engage in close reading, translation, and discussion of parts of Books 1 and 2 of the work, with attention to the meter of the poem, themes of the text, and the philosophic perspective the poet.

Reference to Homer's Iliad and Odyssey, to related works of Latin and English literature, and to printed documents and pictorial represenations supplements this study.

Students continue to learn additional Latin vocabulary and English derivatives throughout the course.
