This volume embeds Latin narrative, monologue, and dialogue within colorful illustrations, allowing the text to be contextualized (and remembered) in a way that words standing on the page alone simply cannot. Along with the Latin text, an English translation is conveniently located at the bottom of each page. The translation is fresh and also fairly literal, preserving word order significance while accurately representing the important features of the Latin text. Utilizing current research on linguistics (e.g., verb tense), the translation conveys the importance of every sentence element without “over-translating” and moving into commentary. The book is perfect for the beginning student, who may need help understanding Latin word meanings and the significance of special constructions like purpose, conditionals, and participles.
