9780300139181: War with Hannibal: Authentic Latin Prose for the Beginning Student

This edition of Book III of Eutropius’s Breviarium ab urbe condita is designed to be a student’s first encounter with authentic, unabridged Latin prose. Written in a simple and direct style, the Breviarium covers the period of Roman history that students find the most interesting―the  Second Punic War fought against Carthage―and the original Latin text is supplemented with considerable learning support. Full annotations on every page, detailed commentary on grammar and syntax, and a glossary designed specifically for the text allow students to build both their confidence and their reading skills. 

 

The commentary in the back of the book is cross-referenced to the following commonly used textbooks:

 

Wheelock’s Latin, 6th Edition

Latin: An Intensive Course by Moreland and Fleischer

Ecce Romani II, 3rd Edition

Latin for Americans, Level 2

Jenney’s Second Year Latin

Allen and Greenough’s New Latin Grammar

 

Macrons have been added to the entire text in accordance with the vowel quantities used in the Oxford Latin Dictionary. Additional resources include an unannotated version of the text for classroom use, supplementary passages in English from other ancient authors, and appendixes with a timeline of events and maps and battle plans.

 

The text may be used in secondary schools and colleges as early as the first year of study. The copious translation help, notes, and cross-references also make it ideal for independent learners.

About the Author:

Brian Beyer teaches Latin at Montgomery High School in Skillman, NJ.

Review:

"Exceedingly accurate, clearly presented, and annotated with just the right amount of help . . . it answers better than any other text I've seen the perennial problem of how to do the transition from learning the basics of Latin to actually reading Latin texts."—Denis Feeney, Princeton University


"To the best of my knowledge, this is the only easy reader (suitable for a beginning to intermediate level Latin student) that presents a sustained story in authentic, unabridged Latin."—Margaret Brucia, Temple University, Rome Campus


"Eutropius writes in good, standard classical Latin . . . [His style] challenges the emerging Latin students without annihilating their confidence. . . . Beyer supplements the readings with generous notes, which deftly point out the way."—Dale Grote, University of North Carolina, Charlotte, from the preface
