Filling a major gap in the literature, this useful collection of Latin prose offers ninety-six short passages ranging from the second century B.C. to the sixth century A.D. The book allows students to sample a wide variety of Latin prose texts and illustrates both development and generic differences. Each text is accompanied by a short introduction and brief notes that explain difficult words and draw attention to linguistic and stylistic points. The selections include works by Cato the Censor, C. Gracchus, the annalists, Cicero, Sallust, Livy, Tacitus, Seneca, Vitruvius, and Pliny; some early Patristic texts; and extracts from the Vulgate. Chosen for their diversity and interesting content, the passages are completely accessible to both teachers and students of Latin language and literature, making this anthology invaluable in the teaching and study of Latin prose composition.
