Thirty-eight Latin Stories: 5th edition Designed to Accompany Wheelock's Latin (7th Edition)

Paperback vi+104

Though designed specifically for use with Wheelock's introductory Latin course, 38 Latin Stories will complement other introductory Latin courses. 38 Latin Stories contains beginning-level prose readings that gradually increase in complexity. Eighteen of the selections are original compositions recounting tales from classical mythology and are often inspired by Ovid. Twenty are adaptations of passages from Caesar, Catullus, Cicero, Horace, Livy, Petronius, Pliny, Quintilian, Sallust, Terence, and Vergil with a heavy emphasis on Cicero. This fifth revised edition accommodates the changes incorporated in the seventh edition of Wheelock.
