If you've finish learning basics of Latin grammar but don't yet feel ready to tackle Roman Latin without a bit of hand holding, then you'll get a lot out of this collection of interesting excerpts.

The anthology is half poetry and half prose. All the pieces come with glosses which define unusual words, provide left-out words and, most helpfully, clarify the word order of the more complicated sentences. The glosses provide that all important help for those attempting the originals for the first time.

I am slightly disappointed that the prose has been adapted. Having checked the originals, all available on the web, it appears that some of the duller bits and some of the harder bits have been removed or rephrased. But that is not unreasonable given the target, GCSE-level, readership of the book, and despite the adaptation the voices of the original authors still shine through.

I lead a U3A class for Latin for those in year 2 and beyond. This is the perfect introduction to classical Latin. There is text on the left hand side, and specific vocab. on the right. There is a general vocab. at the back.

All the principal authors are there, with the strange exception of the playwrights Plautus and Terence.

The book looks very good, is good to hold and fits easily into the pocket. It is very well supported through the Cambridge Latin Course website.

This book has proved indespensible to my understanding of Latin literature. It is well-written, presented and is lucid in it's masterly exposition of the key Latin classical texts. I would highly recommend it to any student of GSCE Latin who is looking to attain a high grade. The co-author, Mr Philip Parr, is an accomplished and excellent Latin teacher and I can personally vouch for his wit and intergrity as i myself have personally benefited from his knowledge for 3 years.

I found this anthology very intriguing, with its choice of texts and the additional vocabulary given. I believe that in this book, the authors, particularly Mr Parr, has shone through as an incredibly well thought out person, who has chosen the texts with particular care. I am impressed by the way he accompanies his careful texts with impressive teaching, explaining everything with in-depth detail to illustrate fully the meanings of the anthology.
