Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: This reader contains selections from Catullus, designed for students moving from elementary or intermediate Latin into reading the authentic Latin of Catullus. Passages are accompanied by pre-reading materials, grammatical exercises, complete vocabulary, notes designed for reading comprehension, and other reading aides. Introductory materials (including a section on Catullan meters) and illustrations are included.

Special Features

* pre-reading materials for each passage of Latin, designed to help the student understand the underlying cultural and literary concepts in the Latin passage
* short explanations related to the grammatical and syntactical usages that will be found in the passage, accompanied by exercises
* the first version of the Latin text with gapped words in parentheses and difficult noun-adjective pairings highlighted by the use of a different font
* complete vocabulary and grammatical notes on the page facing the Latin passage. Any vocabulary word found in the passage but not in the notes is found in the pull-out vocabulary at the back of the book
* the second version of the Latin text in its unchanged form
* literary notes on the page facing the unchanged Latin text
* post-reading materials for each passage designed to help the student understand Vergil's style of writing and to allow the student to reflect upon what has been read
* the last four Latin passages do not contain any of the transitional aides such as gapped words or the use of fonts. Notes on grammar, vocabulary, and literary analysis continue to be on the page facing the passage


This series of transitional readers is the first to use proven reading techniques to aid students in making the transition from a basal textbook to an authentic Latin author. The Catullus Transitional Reader is the second book of the series to be published and is specifically designed to help students learn to read Catullus before they are enrolled in an AP Latin Poetry course.
