Aeneas to Augustus: A Beginning Latin Reader for College Students, Second Edition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Roman history in Latin readings sustained by English prefaces and generous annotation, Aeneas to Augustus is paper-bound and lithographed from typescript while practice tests its effectiveness. Prose (Part I) and poetry (Part II)--each Part a term's work with a full historic span--may be alternated during a year's course without losing continuity. Latin readings approximate a class hour's needs; each Part forms a sequence of graduated complexity; a vocabulary is included; and literary and linguistic annotations will interest both beginning and advanced students.

Synopsis:

This reader consists of 90 selections illustrating the history of Rome from the myth of Aeneas to the founding of the Augustan Principate. The selections have been chosen with three aims in mind: gradual increase in length and difficulty, continuity of subject matter, and stylistic variety. Historical background is provided in the prefaces to the selections. The present letterpress edition is more convenient to use than its predecessor of 1962. The notes have been extensively revised and the vocabulary has been newly compiled.
