These courses are intended primarily to increase fluency, for students who have had some but not much exposure to Latin, by reading more literature in the original. A range of prose and verse authors are covered.
Tutors choose texts intended to best suit the students based on the information they and their referees provide. This may consist of whole texts (e. g. an easier book of Ovid) but a lot of groups will use readers an anthologies such as:
- Wheelock – Selections from Latin Literature
- Murgatroyd – Apuleius, Metamorphoses and From Augustus to Nero
- Balme and Morwood – Cupid and Psyche and The Millionaire’s Dinner Party
- The Oxford and Cambridge Latin Anthologies
