The Latin Literature courses (Poetry and Prose) are 35-week tutored email correspondence courses. Each course course costs £150.

Please use the menu on the left for more details, or read on below for an overview.

These courses are for people of all ages who have reached Latin Level 2/GCSE/O level (or equivalent) or have completed Book IV or V of the Cambridge Latin Course and wish to encounter Latin literature in the original in a supportive environment. You may start a course whenever you wish and progress at whatever pace you like - your e-tutor will be available for up to 35 weeks. 

The courses are not examined and are ideally suited to those who want to improve their reading fluency and broaden their experience of classical literature, both poetry and prose. Students can also use one or both of the courses in preparation for our AS course. 

Each of the courses consists of 12 sessions. In the poetry course we have the opportunity to study a variety of authors: Ovid, Catullus, Virgil, Horace and Martial. In the prose course we read extracts from Tacitus, Caesar, Pliny the Elder, Pliny the Younger, Cicero and the Acts of the Apostles.
