The Cambridge Latin Course is a well-established five-part Latin programme whose approach combines a stimulating, continuous storyline with grammatical development, work on derivatives, and cultural information. There is also a complete Language Information section, plus numerous colour photographs illustrating life in the Roman world. The Course has now been fully revised and updated in the light of feedback from user schools, and includes the very best in new research. The Fourth Edition continues to offer students and teachers alike a stimulating, reading-based approach to the study of Latin. Book V is set in and around the court of the Emperor Domitian. The topics covered are: town and country life, the emperor's council, the senatorial career, recitationes and the writing of literature, marriage, and the lawcourts. Verse by Martial and Ovid is integrated with the stories.
'The paralinguistic sections have also seen some revision and, as with the whole book, the improved layout and colour photos make for a more attractive and 'user-friendly' text.' The Journal of Classics Teaching
