9780300194951: Learn to Read Latin

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

About the Author:

Andrew Keller and Stephanie Russell teach classics at Collegiate School in New York City.

Review:

"Learn to Read Latin both smooths and speeds the way to true Latinity. The authors achieve a standard for the whole rest of the field in breadth and depth of outlook, to say nothing of accuracy in and love for the subject."—Tim Markey, Ph. D., Worcester Academy
"I believe that Learn to Read Latin is far better than Wheelock’s Latin and any other text known to me. The book contains nearly everything a student trying to learn to read a piece of Latin literature might need to know.”—Jonathan Master, Emory University
"It is simply outstanding. My students read Latin far more precisely and far more readily than they ever did when I taught Wheelock or Moreland and Fleischer. I am especially pleased by how able they are to attack a piece of difficult Latin which they have never seen."―Dana Burgess, Whitman College

"Offering crystal clear explanations of Latin vocabulary, morphology, and grammar and an unparalleled wealth of exercises and unadapted selected readings, LTRL has rightly become the first choice of teachers and students across the English-speaking world."—Jonathan L. Ready, Indiana University
