FOR OUR STUDENTS AT ST. OLAF COLLEGE

iv FOREWORD TO THE FIFTH EDITION These thirty-eight Latin stories are designed specifical- ly for use with Frederic M. Wheelock's Latin: An I ntro - ductory Course Based on Ancient Authors. The first eigh- teen are Ollf own compositions, often inspired by Ovid; each recounts a tale from classical mythology. The last twenty are adaptations of passages (ones that we find interesting as well as instructive) from Caesar, Catul- Ius, Cicero, Horace, Livy, Petroni us, Pliny, Quintilian, Sallust, Terence, and Vergil. Poetry has been recast as p rose . We have drawn heavily upon Cicero since he is the author most frequently represented in Wheelock's Lod Antiqui and [mmutati, for which our stories, gradually increasing in complexity, are intended to be preparation. For the most part, the vocabulary and the grammatical constructions used in each story are those to which students would have been introduced by the time they reached a particular chapter in Wheelock; any unfamiliar words or constructions are explained in the marginal notes, which also supply background information necessary for understanding the stories. To aid students, we have marked all long vowels with ma- crons and included a glossary at the back of the book.

It is our hope that these stories, most of which we have already used with success in our beginning Latin classes at Saint Olaf College, will be a valuable supple- ment to an excellent textbook and will help students make the transition from memorizing vocabulary and grammatical rules, to reading and appreciating "real" Latin. We are grateful to our anonymous reader, who generously donated his time and expertise to make the stories as free of errors and barbarisms as possible; any mistakes that remain are our own. In our third, revised edition we have endeavored to incorporate the suggestions of several friends and col- leagues (especially Richard A. LaFleur and Stephen G. Daitz) who have used this book in their classes. To that end we have added a table of contents, a short intro- duction to each story, line-numbering, and vocabulary inadvertently omitted in the previous editions.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
