Wheelock’s Latin Reader, newly revised and updated by
Richard A. LaFleur,is the ideal text for students who have completed Wheelock's 6th or 7th editions or for any intermediate-level Latin course. You’ll find a rich selection of prose and poetry from a wide range
of classical authors, as well as briefer passages from medieval and Latin
writers, each presented in the Latin in which it was originally written.
Useful features include extensive notes; a complete
Latin-English vocabulary; maps of ancient Italy, Greece, and the Roman
Empire; and numerous photographs illustrating aspects of classical culture,
mythology, and history featured in the readings.
Praise for Wheelock's Latin Reader:
This [new second edition] is unique among
Latin readers in that it can be used with success following any elementary
Latin text.... What makes this reader outstanding is the wide selection of
readings. Classical, post-classical, patristic/late-antique, and medieval
selections (ca. 3,400 lines spanning some 1,400 years) introduce students
early on to the breadth and wealth of Latin literature.... The
variety...will allow teachers to adapt to any methodology or learner-type,
and to appeal to classicists and non-majors at both the high-school and
post-secondary levels, while the readings--poetry, prose, philosophy,
letters, legal advice, et al.--allow the spirit of Latin literature to speak
for itself. [complete review]
–Professor Cynthia White, University of Arizona, in The Classical Outlook
“The passages from Cicero, Livy, Ovid and
Pliny are adequate to reveal the style of each, and easy enough to be read
with some rapidity. The inclusion of something from medieval Latin and the
Vulgate is a particularly happy innovation, and certainly all students
exposed to Latin should be aware of the poems with which the book ends.”
–Modern Language Journal
“[Wheelock’s Latin Reader] is a solid
companion to [Wheelock’s Latin] and deserves wide circulation as a
practical introduction to the humanism of Ancient Rome.” –The Classical
“The widespread adoption of Wheelock’s
introductory Latin is a tribute to its mature approach. His reader is a
worthy continuation.” –Classical World
"The text is good. Which is not surprising of
a Frederic M. Wheelock text, revised by Rick LaFleur. Helpful glosses, and
an all around delight. Tell your friends." –D.D. Farms
