Product Description

This three-part course is divided between this book, Part 1, and the Oxford Latin Course Part II and the Part III, 2nd Edition (now out-of-print). Built around a narrative on the life of Horace, students will develop a unique understanding of Latin, as well as the times of Cicero and Augustus. Part I focuses on his childhood and early schooling. Chapters begin with captioned illustrations, a vocabulary list and reading passage to translate; Latin review questions follow. Then read about the location and times of Horace in English, with historical details, Latin place names, and photographs of artifacts and modern-day Italy. This second edition includes Americanized spellings and order of declensions, full-color illustrations and photographs, revised narrative passages that are now based more closely on historical sources and more emphasis on the role of women and daily life. Additional exercises, grammar charts and a glossary are included. 157 pages, softcover. Part 1, 2nd Edition.

Publisher's Description

Designed for North American students, this special version of the Oxford Latin Course combines the best features of both modern and traditional methods of Latin teaching, providing an exciting, stimulating introduction and approach to Latin based on the reading of original texts.
In this four-volume North American edition, the order of declensions corresponds to customary U.S. usage, and the spelling has been Americanized. In addition, it offers full-color illustrations and photographs throughout Parts I and II and an expanded Teacher's Book with translations for each part. Parts I-III (now available in hardcover editions) are built around a narrative detailing the life of Horace, now based more closely on historical sources, which helps students to get to know real Romans--with their daily activities, concerns, and habits--and to develop an understanding of Roman civilization during the time of Cicero and Augustus. Part IV (paperback) is a reader consisting of extracts from Caesar, Cicero, Catullus, Virgil, Livy, and Ovid.
The second edition of the Oxford Latin Course has been carefully designed to maximize student interest, understanding, and competence. It features a clearer presentation of grammar, revised narrative passages, new background sections, more emphasis on daily life and on the role of women, a greater number and variety of exercises, and review chapters and tests. Each chapter opens with a set of cartoons with Latin captions that illustrate new grammar points. A Latin reading follows, with new vocabulary highlighted in the margins and follow-up exercises that focus on reading comprehension and grammatical analysis. A background essay in English concludes each chapter. Covering a variety of topics--from history to food, from slavery to travel, these engaging essays present a well-rounded picture of Augustan Rome.
The Oxford Latin Course, Second Edition offers today's students and teachers an exceptionally engaging and attractive introduction to the language, literature, and culture of Rome--one that builds skills effectively and is exciting to use.
