    Description & More Details

    A new approach to Latin prose composition, this book is concisely organized, giving easy and efficient reference. The ten chapters deal with conveying messages in simple sentences, connecting independent sentences to create a text, expressing relationships within a clause, use of word order, vocabulary, what vocabulary to choose, and subordination. Practical exercises guide students in reworking ancient texts and creating their own.
