Reading Latin: Petronius’ Cena Trimalchionis

Birgitta Hoffmann

Written in the mid first century, Petronius’ Satyricon is the story of raucous mishaps, satirizing the literature and life style of its age. In the centre is the Cena Trimalchionis a dinner party by a nouveau riche trying to give the dinner of all dinners, demonstrating to all and sundry all that money can buy and also what it can’t.

We will be reading this section of the Satyricon in the Latin original.

Learning materials will be provided, but a Latin/English dictionary will be useful.

Newcomers are always welcome but should ensure that they are familiar with the material in Wilding’s up to Volume 3, feel free to ask to come for a trial session, if you are unsure.
