Review:

'I used Cicero Legamus with my honors level junior class (Honors Latin III). Since I was already familiar with the Legamus series having used Catullus and Ovid for Latin IV, I knew that this would be the ideal text to introduce the structure and style of Cicero's prose. The students found the clause breakdown of the periodic sentences immensely helpful as they also did the typeface cues. As they grew in their understanding of parataxis, rhetorical figures, and word order, they made the transition well to the later chapters when given Latin text without structural assistance.

The notes are especially helpful. The students are introduced to the background of the speech with a good deal of historical information on the events in Rome and the many important supporters of Archias.

After their experience with the Cicero Legamus text, my students began reading Frerichs' In Catilinam I (also from B-C) with greater confidence and understanding. I am grateful for the Legamus series and most especially the Cicero transitional text.' --Rebecca Wick, Loyola Academy
