Publisher's Description

Adapted to better meet the needs of American college students, The Oxford Latin Course, College Edition, retains its trademark reading-based approach, but does so now in two companion volumes--Readings and Vocabulary and Grammar, Exercises, Context--that cover all of the topics essential to a first-year Latin course.


* Streamlined organization that focuses more closely on the life of the Roman poet Horace

* Additional and more robust grammar explanations

* Revised cartoons--completely redrawn for a college audience--that illustrate grammar points and provide students with "visual vignettes"

* A revised narrative that corresponds to customary U.S. usage and Americanized spelling

* A Companion Website at www.oup.com/us/morwood containing grammar and syntax drills, flashcards for vocabulary review, phonetic pronunciations, and instructional materials

Editorial Reviews

"Congratulations on hitting just the right approach to making a very enjoyable set of Latin texts more functional for college teaching."--Robert Luginbill, University of Louisville

"This new and improved version of the Oxford Latin Course is better suited for today's college students. It is a reading-approach text that also has an excellent grammar component."--Victor Leuci, Westminster College

"Across the board, students ask for more history and culture in Latin class, and this book gives them exactly that. The running story, cultural essays, and actual Latin readings will hold their interest much more effectively than random sentences and vocabulary."--Zoe Kontes, Kenyon College

"I am favorably impressed by the new cartoons. They are drawn in a style that most college students will find compelling."--David Christenson, University of Arizona
