About this Item

128 pages. Softcover. New book. LATIN. A student-friendly reader featuring entertaining texts and helpful grammar review. The second year of Latin instruction can be the most difficult for student and teacher alike. Students must remember a seemingly endless array of grammatical rules and vocabulary, and often the material to be translated seems dull and lengthy beyond endurance. These problems have been overcome by P. L. Chambers with the help of one ancient Roman. Aulus Gellius, a well-educated nobleman, is best known today for a collection of observations titled Noctes Atticae, a project he began during the long winter nights he spent in Attica, the region of Greece where Athens is located. The selections chosen for this reader touch on diverse aspects of Roman culture and can be easily understood and translated by intermediate students. A classroom-tested book, The Attic Nights of Aulus Gellius will motivate second-year students to continue their course of study while providing a much-needed alternative for Latin instructors seeking accessible textbooks for their students. P. L. Chambers is an instructor in the Department of Letters and Latin at the University of Oklahoma. She is the author of Latin Alive and Well: An Introductory Text. (Key Words: Aulus Gellius, P. L. Chambers, Latin Instruction, Roman Culture, Athens, Latin Language). Bookseller Inventory # 66450X1
