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.
