Review by: Stanley Iverson, Concordia College - April 19, 2013
The profession long looked forward to and appreciates the reprint of Bennett’s New Latin Grammar. Now it will be wonderful to have the companion piece, Bennett’s New Latin Composition. The composition book in one section emphasizes Caesar and in the other, Cicero; it includes additional work in continued prose and oral exercises as well as a comprehensive parallel vocabulary. The two books form a complete set for a course in Latin prose composition.
An excellent guide to prose composition, focusing on Cicero and Caesar as models.
