Format: Paperback
Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers is a seminal source of materials for the study of Latin. Two of their newest contributions include John Henderson's "A Plautus Reader: Selections from Eleven Plays" and Victoria E. Pagan's "A Sallust Reader: Selections from Bellum Catilinae, Bellum Iugurthinum, and Historiae". The comedic playwright Plautus and the Roman historian Sallust are significant in studying the culture and history of Rome and serve as ideal sources in the study of Latin for modern students. Enhanced with grammatical and historical notes, maps and photos, and vocabulary, both "A Plautus Reader" and "A Sallust Reader" will prove invaluable additions to personal, professional, and academic library Latin Studies reference collections and supplemental reading lists.

If you are preparing your doctoral dissertation on Roman adaptation of Greek comedy and appreciate a literary style that can only be described as "snooty," then this book is your ticket. If you are curious as to how Romans conversed in the earlier Republic, then you will have missed your mark and left with the impression that the Romans never spoke without the use of fanciful metaphors or without the use of three or four subordinate clauses to every sentence that they uttered.
