Description
 
<p>For nearly sixty years, <i>Wheelock's Latin</i> has remained the opitmus liber of beginning Latin textbooks.</p> <p>When Professor Frederic M. Wheelock's <i>Latin</i> first appeared in 1956, the reviews extolled its thoroughness, organization, and conciseness; one reviewer predicted that the book "might well become the standard text" for introducing students to elementary Latin. Now, nearly six decades later, that prediction has certainly proved accurate.</p> <p>This new edition of <i>Wheelock's Latin</i> has all of the features, many of them improved and expanded, that have made it the bestselling single-volume beginning Latin textbook:</p> <ul> <li>40 chapters with grammatical explanations and readings drawn from the works of Rome's major prose and verse writers;</li> <li>Self-tutorial exercises, each with an answer key, for independent study;</li> <li>An extensive English-Latin/Latin-English vocabulary section;</li> <li>A rich selection of original Latin readings-unlike other Latin textbooks, which contain primarily made-up texts;</li> <li>Etymological aids, maps, and dozens of images illustrating aspects of the classical culture and mythology presented in the chapter readings.</li> </ul> <p>Also included are expanded notes on the literary passages, comments on vocabulary, and translation tips; new comprehension and discussion questions; and new authentic classical Latin readings, including Roman graffiti, in every chapter.</p
