Product Overview

An invigorating selection of "everyday" Latin from ancient times to the present day, this guide includes an exploration of poetry, epitaphs, and inscriptions and a look at the origins of Latin names still used in English. Ancient Roman curses from Bath Spa and letters from Hadrian's Wall are at one end of the spectrum, at the other are Neo-Latin authors, many rarely studied by Classics students. In between is an exploration of Latin poetry, both sacred and profane, hymns and verse epitaphs, and letters from Cicero, Augustus, Heloise, Erasmus, Petrarch, Smollett, and Sterne among others. All texts are accompanied by in-depth notes, and there is a grammatical index and English translations.
