This book features thirty compelling stories, graduated in difficulty and adapted from Ovid’s epic Metamorphoses into prose. Each chapter contains: a Latin passage adapted from the epic; an accompanying vocabulary list; a short commentary to help with translation; a concise review of the specific grammar covered; a brief comment on a literary aspect of the poem, or featured myth.
Using an introduction to mythology by the master storyteller Ovid himself, the authors have prepared a unique teaching tool designed to achieve proficiency at Latin in one year at the college level, two years at the high school or intermediate level. The volume provides students with imaginative, connected reading, beginning with introductory prose versions of Ovid's simple myth tales and progressing to the rich poetry of Ovidian Latin (with appropriate teaching aids) within forty lessons.
