Overview

This text presents in Acceleration Reader format a Latin translation of Plutarch�s Greek essay from his famous Parallel Lives of Celebrated Greeks and Romans (ca. 100 CE). Latin teachers and students may find that this device provides a useful, attractive, and very relevant way to incorporate some of the treasures of Greek literature into their Latin studies. For someone not planning to study Greek, Latin translations such as these can be quite stimulating, particularly because of the value, range, and quality of what that older civilization has left us. In fact, for most of Western history, much of the Greek cultural heritage was absorbed in Latin form, directly or indirectly ( � one need only consider Jerome�s Vulgate, for example). Those who study both ancient Greek and Latin may get insights into the languages and the meanings of this specific text by considering the choices made by the translator. The length is approximately 11,000 Latin words.
