Overview

Originally written by the late Wheelock (formerly of Harvard U., the College of the City of New York and elsewhere) and revised for the new edition by LaFleur (classics, U. of Georgia), this single-volume introductory Latin textbook builds on original Latin writings chosen for their inherent interest, rather than merely because of their illustration of forms and syntax, and constructs the pedagogical plan based on them. The textbook thus becomes an introduction both to the language and to Roman experience and thought. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
