Praise for the First Edition

'Latin passages are judiciously gleaned from the canon of Latin literature.' The Classical Review

Praise for the Second Edition

'A joy to read...most engaging. I especially enjoy the artistic interweaving of culture, myth, history and literature. Complete Latin is a good tool for hooking students on the classical world with its people and their problems, its language and traditions. The writer moves the text along the learning curve with such speed that he dispels any sense of boredom or drudgery... In sum, this text is based on sound and proven methodology and pedagogical principles. It may well usher in a new and happier era of classical studies.' Pauline Nugent, Missouri State University, USA
