Review:

I think this edition of the Ovid selections on the current AP syllabus will be well received. Bolchazy-Carducci continues its series of Advanced Placement course materials, pairing a student text with a teacher's edition which includes the text selections in large font, suitable for reproducing on transparencies for the overhead projector. The student books follow the format of placing Latin text on the right hand pages and vocabulary, and grammatical and critical notes on the left, with occasional extensions of notes to the lower half of the right pages. My students found the vocabulary helpful and non-intrusive. Some students liked that the editors point out and label rhetorical figures, e.g. litotes, hendiadys, etc. Interpretive comments supplement the notes in the early selections, but later on it is up to the teacher to encourage students to determine the force or effect of each figure of speech in class discussion or assignments, an editorial decision I appreciated. Many of the grammatical aids are aimed perfectly for the young intermediate student, asking ?What case?' after a vocabulary gloss, or ?indicative or subjunctive?' One student commented that these questions routinely caught her from making snap judgments and encouraged her to work more carefully, knowing that she could figure out the grammar correctly, once reminded.

One element of the editions which I found useful was the self-questioning, self-checking exercises placed as an appendix to the Ovid texts in the student book. My more motivated students used these in preparing for tests. In addition, I found them useful for beginning class as a warm-up exercise. I reproduced the page of questions and put it up on the overhead, uncovering the answers as students went along. My students also liked the inclusion of a high frequency vocabulary list in addition to the full glossary in the appendices.

I used their materials for several poems of the Amores, as my AP students finished their review for the AP exam this spring. On occasion I gave the class photocopies of the large font pages of the Teacher's Edition, asking them to mark, code and comment on figures of speech and word arrangements. The students found the spacing and format better suited to their class work than other ways I had presented this exercise in the past, and we had excellent discussions in their presentations to each other of their work. The teacher's edition includes suggestions for teaching scansion, a topical bibliography, translations of the passages, and AP format tests, which cover each poem or selection. The tests are a boon for the teacher, saving some preparation time and providing practice of the general format along with manageable amounts of material to review and to cover in a class period. I gave two as tests and used one to structure a class review of Amores 3.15. I found the variety of the questions fair and representative.

In conclusion, this reviewer found these books attractive, helpful and useful. The editors are to be commended for using a judicious mixture of advice and restraint, striking a balance, which encouraged my students to use their skills and develop a literary confidence of their own. --Nina Barclay, Norwich Free Academy

This book is aimed at Advanced Placement and college level students who are ready to read Ovidian poetry. The selections include Amores 1.3, 1.9, 1.11, 1.12 and 111.15 as well as selections from the Metamorphoses (Apollo and Daphne, Pyramus and Thisbe, Philemon and Baucis, Daedalus and Icarus, and Pygmalion.)

Like the Pharr Virgil text, Ovid: Amores, Metamorphoses includes only a few lines of the poem on each page so that extensive vocabulary and notes may be provided to the student. Although some feel that the vocabulary and notes may be a crutch to the student, I personally think that this arrangement enables the student to concentrate on reading and comprehending Latin rather than thumbing through a dictionary.

The macron controversy is resolved by a compromise. The actual text does not include macrons, but the accompanying notes and glossary do.

The illustrations are simple, including some black and white line drawings and maps of places mentioned in the poems.

What distinguishes this volume most is the set of syntactical line-by-line questions in the appendix. A series of questions (with answers) focusing on syntax is provided for students as an aid to translation and comprehension of the poem. These questions are meant for independent use, rather than classroom discussion. Such questions seem to be useful at helping students look at the Latin thoughtfully, rather than as a jumble of words.

There is an accompanying teacher's guide that includes helpful hints and suggestions for teaching scansion of dactylic hexameter and elegiac couplet. The text of the poems is reproduced in a font size appropriate for overhead transparency, which is timesaving for the teacher. Full translations of all the selections are included. Finally, there are sample tests in an AP format for each test and a topical bibliography. --Sharon Kazmierski
