A Notebook for Vergil’s Aeneid provides students with a system for processing their homework and preparing their Latin assignment for in-class presentation. The complete Latin text for the AP® Latin Exam is triple-spaced to allow plenty of room for annotations. Below the Latin passage, students copy from their textbooks all the Latin vocabulary that they do not know. This changes the process of vocabulary building from one of passive recognition to active recall by creating personalized vocabulary lists for study. The facing page provides two blank lines keyed to the Latin text: one for the students’ home translations and one for corrections students note as the class shares translations. The second line allows students to make adjustments without erasing their mistakes. Doing so encourages students to become reflective learners who analyze and learn from their errors. The section below the translation, entitled “Additional Notes,” keeps class notes together with the Latin passage. At the end of each set of Latin passages from the individual books of the Aeneid, students keep track of and review the major plot points for what they have read in Latin. Students also construct summaries of the English readings required by the AP® Latin Curriculum on pages so designated.

A Propertius Reader: Eleven Selected Elegies

A Propertius Reader: Eleven Selected Elegies
Author: P. Lowell Bowditch
Product Code: 7230

Publisher: Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers

Product Format: Paperback
Price:  $19.00

The erotic elegy of Propertius reveals the work of a consummate artist, one who deftly weaves public themes into the emotional experiences of a first-person narrator. The poems in this selection reflect an evolution from a private focus on erotic love to more public and political themes, charting a gradual if ambiguous accommodation to the interests of the Augustan regime. Compelling portraits of passion are entwined with varied features of Rome’s momentous historical transition from republic to empire: the trauma of recent civil wars, nostalgia for an irrecoverable past, the stirrings of social legislation, and the opulence of foreign luxuries from trade and conquest. Selections also display Propertius’s innovative treatment of gender and the psychology of desire, and provide insight into the origins of Western attitudes toward erotic feeling.

A Roman Women Reader: Selections from the Second Century BCE through Second Century CE

This selection of Latin readings, drawn from texts in a variety of genres across four centuries, aims to provide a comprehensive and accurate picture of the images and realities of women in Roman antiquity. Depicted in the readings are both historical and fictional women, of varying ages and at different stages of life, from a range of social classes, and from different locales. We see them dramatized—sometimes in their own words—in the roles the women actually played, as wives and mothers, friends and lovers. This Reader differs from others in showing women in explicitly erotic roles, in drawing some of its passages from "archaic" Latin, and in encouraging a variety of critical approaches, all suitable for its intended college-level audience.

A Tibullus Reader: Seven Selected Elegies

A Tibullus Reader: Seven Selected Elegies
Author: Paul Allen Miller
Product Code: 7249

Pages: 132
Product Format: Paperback
Price:  $19.00

Albius Tibullus, considered along with Ovid and Propertius one of the canonical elegists of the Augustan period, was in antiquity deemed the most accomplished of the three. Quintilian sums it up nicely: “In my opinion Tibullus is a very elegant and concise author. There are those who prefer Propertius.” Modern critics, however, have not always been as favorable. The dreamlike quality of Tibullus’s text is sometimes cited as evidence that his poems are smooth or soft, and lacking formal integrity. Paul Allen Miller argues instead for seeing them as a complex tissue of related, interwoven, and sometimes contradictory themes. Miller’s commentary, informed by modern scholarship, accepts the challenge of elucidating the often complex logic of the selected poems.
