Back by popular demand, our fearless panel – the Classics dons Mary Beard FBALlewelyn Morgan and author and classicist Peter Stothard – give a masterclass on Virgil, focusing on Eclogue 9. Join us for a chance to take a fresh look at ‘pastoral poetry’, and to go beyond the lovesick shepherds to find some tougher messages. Translations are provided and only minimal knowledge of Latin is required.
