Telling Tales in Latin


A New Latin Course and Storybook for Children
Lorna Robinson, Soham De

Summary
An innovative and accessible way to begin teaching Latin to children of any age

Narrated by the chatty and imaginative Roman poet Ovid (who lived in Rome during the first century BC), this
new course takes young learners on a journey through some of the tales from Ovid's Metamorphoses. From
Daedalus to the story of Orpheus, Lorna Robinson uses Ovid's stories to teach Latin grammar and vocabulary,
exploring the relationship between Latin and English to enhance literacy as well as encouraging children's
imaginations by asking them to discuss how Ovid's themes are still topical today. At the end of each chapter
there are suggested activities to help learners reinforce what they have just learned. The illustrations bring
Ovid's stories alive for a wide range of learners, making this book the ideal first introduction to Latin.

Lawyers' Latin
A Vade-Mecum
John Gray, The Rt. Hon. The Lord Deedes of Alding...

Summary
This invaluable reference book was originally written as an aid for those disadvantaged by the deteriorating
standing of Latin in our education system and by its use as legal terminology. Professional and comprehensive,
yet lighthearted, it is immensely readable and has assumed a readership far beyond the lawyers for whom it was
primarily designed to assist.

Translating Rome
Robert Graves, Robert Cummings

Summary
Featuring translations of three classical Roman works-Apuleius's The Golden Ass, Lucan's Pharsalia, and
Suetonius's The Twelve Ceasars-this collection is vital to the understanding of Roman culture and history. The
Golden Ass tells the story of a young man who, through his own stupidity, is turned into a donkey, thus
beginning his rollicking quest to regain his human form through worship of the gods Isis and Osiris. Pharsalia is an
epic poem that chronicles the conflict between Julius Caesar and the senator Pompey in northern Greece around
48 BC. The Twelve Ceasars is a biography of the Roman rulers from Julius Caesar to Domitian, a vivid and racy
account of the sex, politics, and violence that constituted their experiences as Rome's most powerful men. Rife
with the delights and excesses of Roman culture, these three works are a portal into the world of one of
history's largest empires.

Roman York
Patrick Ottaway

Summary
The great historic city of York owes its origins to the Roman army which built a fortress here on the banks of the
River Ouse in AD 71. By the early third century York had also became the site of a major urban center and the
capital of the northern half of Britain when what had been a single Roman province was divided into two. York's
importance is reflected in the fact that two Roman emperors died in the city: Septimius Severus in the year 211,
and Constantius I in 306, his son Constantine was then acclaimed emperor here by his father's troops.

Roman York tells the story of the fortress and town from their foundation until the early fifth century when
Britain ceased to be part of the Roman Empire. Particular emphasis is placed on the results of recent excavations
and research which have added great deal to our knowledge and understanding of the people who lived in a
Tempus place the Romans knew as Eboracum.

Cosmetics & Perfumes in the Roman World


Susan Stewart

Summary
How widely did women use make-up in ancient Rome and what evidence exists? In this pioneering study, the
author draws on literary, non-literary, visual, and archaeological evidence to show the importance of cosmetics
and perfumes for health, ideas of beauty, social status, as a demonstration of wealth and luxury, and as an
expression of gender within the Roman Empire. Covering the 300 years from the writings of Ovid to the Price
Edict of Diocletian in AD 301, the study acts as a survey of the perception and reality behind the use of
cosmetics and perfumes under the Roman Empire.

Author Bio
Susan Stewart is a School Librarian in West Lothian. The work is based on a PhD thesis awarded by the Open

University.

Roman Military Dress


Graham Sumner

Summary
Despite the great interest in the Roman Army, particularly in the many re-enactment societies, up until now it
has been surprisingly difficult to find out information about the uniforms they wore and the textiles that were
used in those uniforms. Graham Sumner's book redresses this balance, presenting in an informative and
accessible way the evidence for the types of clothing utilized by the Roman soldier. With full scale color
illustrations drawn by the author, who is an experienced historical illustrator, along with patterns and diagrams of
clothing finds and information on the latest archaeological studies, this book provides a comprehensive insight
into the development of the Roman soldier's uniform from the Late Republic to the advent of the Byzantine
Empire.

Running the Roman Home


Alexandra Croom

Summary
The first in-depth look at life on Rome's domestic frontier explores the effort required every day to run a Roman
household
This work considers the three elements of housework-supply, maintenance, and disposal. It is divided into
sections on how the Romans collected water and fuel, milled flour, and produced thread; how they cleaned the
house, illuminated it, did the washing up, cleaned their clothes, got rid of waste water and sewage, and threw
out their garbage. The evidence is taken from literary, archaeological, and artistic sources, and often compared
to historical or modern parallels from communities using the same methods.

The History Press 20 years. She is the author of Roman Clothing and Fashion and Roman Furniture.

Dangerous Days in the Roman Empire


Terry Deary

Summary
The author of children's series Horrible Histories presents the first book in his new offbeat popular history series
for adults-Bill Bryson meets Blackadder

With his trademark crisp, wry writing style and dark sense of humor, Terry Deary begins with the Roman Empire,
in the first in a new series offering concise, informative histories that delve into myths and traditions surrounding
its subjects and attempts to extract cohesion-and possibly even some truth. The Romans have long been held
up as one of the first "civilized" societies, and yet in fact they were capable of immense cruelty. Not only that,
but they made the killing of humans into a sport. The spoiled emperors were the perpetrators (and sometimes
the victims) of some imaginative murders. This book includes some of the violent ways to visit the Elysian Fields

Sonnets
William Shakespeare

Summary
The complete sonnets - now available for the first time in Vintage Classics.

Shakespeare's sonnets are lyrical, haunting, beautiful and often breathtaking, representing one of the finest
bodies of poetry ever penned. They demonstrate the writer's skill in capturing the full range of human emotions
within a carefully prescribed form and creating something unique in every one. Some are familiar - Shall I
compare thee to a summer's day? - others, unexpected, but together they form an extraordinary meditation on
the nature of love, lust, beauty and time.

Children S Shakespeare The


E. Nesbit

Summary
As a writer, E. Nesbit understood that the stories are the least part of Shakespeare, but as a mother she also
understood the need for simplicity. Envisioning this simplified introduction to works such as The Winter's Tale,
Romeo and Juliet, A Midsummer Night's Dream and The Taming of the Shrew -- eleven plays in all -- E. Nesbit set
out to make them more accessible to young readers without sacrificing any essential elements. For if the stories
were stripped of their wit and humor, of their emotion, the children would be no more entertained by them than
by the indecipherable originals. In the end, under E. Nesbit's gifted pen, these stories emerge with all the charm
and grace of the very best fairy tales. Written in thoroughly modern English and each no more than ten pages in
length, the eleven plays featured in this volume afford children the opportunity to discover for themselves the
magic of Shakespeare.

curiosity and tireless loyalty to his ideals. But it is the background to his famous painting La Gioconda, or Mona

Stargazers: Galileo, Copernicus, the Telescope and the Church


Understanding the Heavens 1500-1700
Allan Chapman

Summary
A comprehensive history of how the heavens were discovered and mapped, by the leading astronomers from
1500 onwards

Building on the work of the Greek and Arabian astrologers before him, the idea of a sun-centered universe was
proposed by a church lawyer called Nicholas Copernicus. It was later popularized by Galileo-a fantastic debater
whose abrasive style won him many enemies-who presented new evidence, which suggested that the earth
moved. This thorough examination of Galileo explores both his achievements and influences. It then goes on to
trace the impact of his ideas on those who followed him, including Sir Francis Bacon, Dr. John Wilkins, Dr. Robert
Lion Hudson Hooke, Sir Isaac Newton, and Rev. Dr. James Bradley. Chapman investigates the church's role and its intriguing
9780745956275 relationship with the astronomers of the day. The support and involvement of the church meant that research
Pub Date: 11/1/14 could be undertaken, but at times the relationship was fractious, leading Galileo to famously declare, "the Bible is

deep into the underworld, Dante crosses paths with both old acquaintances and famous persons from history as
he witnesses the strange and gruesome sufferings of the damned on the seven levels of hell. This is Dante's
infamously dramatic, frightening, and sardonic look at the nature of sin, Christianity, and human morality.

Author Bio
Dante Alighieri is the famed author of The Divine Comedy, largely considered the greatest literary work in the
Italian vernacular. Steve Ellis also translated Dante's Hell, and is the author of Chaucer and Virginia Woolf and
the Victorians.
