Give students space to interpret the Aeneid.

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleProfessional

Abstract

The interpretation of Greek and Latin texts is one of the learning objectives
of the Dutch secondary school curriculum in Greek and Latin languages
and cultures. In this context, ‘interpretation’ entails both the skill to find meaning
in Greek and Latin texts yourself and knowledge of existing interpretations. This
article aims to combine these two aspects of interpretation when teaching Virgil’s
Aeneid. I suggest that a narratological approach of space enables students to interpret
the text themselves, while it subsequently enables their teachers to give insight
into existing interpretations and academic discussions of the poem.
