Oundle & District

Latin

We meet every other Monday at 1.45pm at the Oundle Hub in Fletton House for one hour, to read, translate and discuss an extract from the full range of Latin prose and verse literature, selected for its interest/historical significance/literary qualities (anything from Martial’s epigrams to the Magna Carta to Winnie ille Pu!). The purpose is simply to provide an opportunity for people to recall, resuscitate and enjoy their Latin in a very non-challenging arena. During the hour, by supplementing dimly- remembered school Latin with ‘informed’ guesswork, and with a little guidance, members jointly arrive at a translation of the extract, the value and effect of which we then discuss as time allows. No-one is obliged to prepare beforehand, though everyone receives a copy of the selected passage, with vocabulary, prior to the meeting. New members very welcome. It helps to have studied the language to ‘O’ level.
