Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Learn to Read Latin helps students acquire an ability to read and appreciate the great works of Latin literature as quickly as possible. It not only presents basic Latin morphology and syntax with clear explanations and examples but also offers direct access to unabridged passages drawn from a wide variety of Latin texts. As beginning students learn basic forms and grammar, they also gain familiarity with patterns of Latin word order and other features of style.

 

Learn to Read Latin

  • is designed to be comprehensive and requires no supplementary materials
  • explains English grammar points and provides drills especially for today’s students
  • offers sections on Latin metrics
  • includes numerous unaltered examples of ancient Latin prose and poetry
  • incorporates selections by authors such as Caesar, Cicero, Sallust, Catullus, Vergil, and Ovid, presented chronologically with introductions to each author and work
  • offers a comprehensive workbook that provides drills and homework assignments.
This enlarged second edition improves upon an already strong foundation by streamlining grammatical explanations, increasing the number of syntax and morphology drills, and offering additional short and longer readings in Latin prose and poetry.

Synopsis:

One of the most popular Latin texts on the market, Learn to Read Latin helps high school and college students acquire the skills to read and appreciate the great works of Latin literature. It not only presents basic Latin morphology and syntax with clear explanations and examples, but also offers direct access to original, unaltered Latin texts. As beginning students learn basic forms and grammar, they also gain familiarity with patterns of Latin word order and other features of style.

This second edition—which now combines the first and second parts into a single textbook—improves upon an already strong foundation by streamlining grammatical explanations, increasing the number of syntax and morphology drills, and offering additional short and longer readings in Latin prose and poetry.

Synopsis:

 A Latin grammar and reader all in one when the text and workbook are used together, Learn to Read Latin presents basic Latin morphology and syntax with clear explanations and examples, and it offers direct access to great works of Latin literature even at the earliest stages of learning the language. As beginning students learn basic forms and grammar, they also gain familiarity with patterns of Latin word order and other features of style, thus becoming well prepared for later, more difficult texts.

No other beginning Latin book contains as many unaltered versions of ancient texts. Learn to Read Latin includes the writings of authors such as Caesar, Cicero, Sallust, Catullus, Vergil, and Ovid, arranged chronologically and accompanied by introductions to each author and each work. These readings serve as the chief training texts around which the books fifteen chapters are constructed. The workbook provides abundant drills to accompany each chapter of the text. A flexible format allows the workbook exercises to be used in the classroom, for homework assignments, for extra individual drill work, or as a home study tool.
