Mathilde Verstraete cohosts, with the Center for Classical Studies of the University of Montreal, on March 23, 2023 from 9 a.m. (EST) in the Jean-Brillant Building of the University, a public reading of Virgil's Aeneid as part of the Festival Européen Latin Grec.

Each year, the Festival Européen Latin Grec plans a public reading of a classical literary piece. For this 17th edition, the hommage is paid to the Aeneid.

The Center for Classical Studies is taking part in the event: we propose that you join us in declaiming the third canto of the Aeneid, preparing a multilingual reading, in the sense that you can read your passage in the language of your choice, with the intention of making Virgil's verses resonate as widely as possible.


The reading will take place on Thursday, March 23, at 11 a.m. The reading will be preceded by a lecture (9 a.m.) on the challenges of a Virgil reading given by Benjamin Victor and will be followed by a more convivial time around a snack.
