Latin Prose Composition

Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing Release date: 2019-09-05

Description

This book helps students to write Latin using increasingly complex forms of expression. Part 1 gives guidance and practice exercises for the new sentences required at GCSE, while Parts 2 and 3 contain a series of chapters of grammatical introduction and exercises for translation into Latin leading up to A Level and Pre-U. Part 4 takes students into more advanced areas of composition. Continuous passages are included from an early stage alongside stand-alone sentences. Leigh gives clear guidance on the characteristic features of Latin prose, such as word order and subordination, as well as more advanced grammatical complexities. At the back of the book, lists of vocabulary and accidence provide reference and revision tools for students at all levels.Working through the book the rewards of learning to write Latin are clear: not merely a challenge to be overcome, prose composition gives a heightened appreciation of how Latin authors used the language to express themselves in their own particular styles.
