7 CHAMBERS, P. L. Latin Alive And Well: An Introductory Text.
University of Oklahoma Press, Norman: 2007. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
A student-friendly introduction to Latin. Learning Latin can prove daunting even to the brightest students. But this innovative text draws students into the story of Rome and lets Virgil and Livy lead the way in learning declensions and conjugations. Latin Alive and Well is a classroom-tested textbook consisting of 36 units. It is designed for both high school and university classes, in both two-semester courses and intensive one-semester courses. Clear and direct, it avoids lengthy explanations in teaching grammar, instead introducing modern students to this venerable language by focusing on exercises and translations that make fine points of grammar more readily understandable. P. L. Chambers presents essential elements of grammar in a way that enables students to read classical authors immediately, introducing them to a passage from Virgil as early as the fifth chapter. In addition to using selected readings in Roman mythology, history, and philosophy to illustrate grammatical points, she has adopted an informal, encouraging tone, with a healthy dose of humor when appropriate. Latin Alive and Well is written so simply that students with no previous exposure to a foreign language can understand and learn the grammatical concepts. Previously available only in privately published editions, it has been used nationwide. P. L. Chambers is an instructor in the Department of Letters and Latin at the University of Oklahoma, Norman.

12 FEENEY, DENIS. Beyond Greek: The Beginnings Of Latin Literature.
Harvard University Press, Cambridge, Massachusetts and London England: 2016. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
Virgil, Ovid, Cicero, Horace, and other authors of ancient Rome are so firmly established in the Western canon today that the birth of Latin literature seems inevitable. Yet, Denis Feeney boldly argues, the beginnings of Latin literature were anything but inevitable. The cultural flourishing that in time produced the Aeneid, the Metamorphoses, and other Latin classics was one of the strangest events in history. Beyond Greek traces the emergence of Latin literature from 240 to 140 BCE, beginning with Roman stage productions of plays that represented the first translations of Greek literary texts into another language. From a modern perspective, translating foreign-language literature into the vernacular seems perfectly normal. But in an ancient Mediterranean world made up of many multilingual societies with no equivalent to the text-based literature of the Greeks, literary translation was unusual if not unprecedented. Feeney shows how it allowed Romans to systematically take over Greek forms of tragedy, comedy, and epic, making them their own and giving birth to what has become known as Latin literature. The growth of Latin literature coincides with a period of dramatic change in Roman society. The powerful but geographically confined Roman city-state of 320 BCE had conquered all of Italy just fifty years later. By the time Rome became the unquestioned dominant power in the Mediterranean over the course of the next century, its citizens could boast of having a distinct vernacular literature, as well as a historical tradition and mythology, that put them in a unique relationship with Greek culture. Denis Feeney is Giger Professor of Latin at Princeton University. "Manages to make strange an entire narrative of Western literature. It takes an origin myth accepted as logical, 'the creation of a Roman literature on Greek models,' and through its patient, stylish, precise investigation demonstrates how in fact this was 'one of the strangest and most unlikely events in Mediterranean history,' a phenomenon of pure contingency."—Adam Thirlwell, The Times Literary Supplement "Feeney is to be congratulated on his willingness to put Roman literary history in a big comparative context… It is a powerful testimony to the importance of Denis Feeney's work that the old chestnuts of classical literary history—how the Romans got themselves Hellenized, and whether those jack-booted thugs felt anxiously belated or smugly domineering in their appropriation of Greek culture for their own purposes—feel fresh and urgent again."—Emily Wilson, The Times Literary Supplement "[Feeney's] bold theme and vigorous writing render Beyond Greek of interest to anyone intrigued by the history and literature of the classical world."—The Economist "Beyond Greek is a string of revelations about how the Romans busied themselves building a new literature for their new position on the world stage. It takes all the familiar characterizations of ancient Roman literature—as parvenu, as derivative, as a series of ham-handed imitations of a superior culture—and turns them inside-out in some wonderfully thoughtful ways."—Steve Donoghue, Open Letters Monthly "A magisterial and innovative study of the beginnings of Latin literature. It is sure to get noticed, to provoke, and to rankle. It will be the standard, go-to book on the topic for many years to come. Feeney does not hold back."—Kirk Freudenburg, Yale University "By putting Roman literature into a global context, Denis Feeney shows that the Romans, far from being cultural imitators, were actually the innovators of a new form of cultural transmission. This is the study of world literature at its finest."—Martin Puchner, Harvard University

16 HORACE; GARRISON, DANIEL H. Horace: Epodes And Odes, A New Annotated Latin Edition.
University of Oklahoma Press, Norman: 1998. Volume 10 in Oklahoma Series in Classical Culture. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
This fully annotated Latin edition, by Daniel H. Garrison, of Horace's Epodes, Odes, and Carmen Saeculare is the first comprehensive English commentary on these works since 1903. The full text of the Epodes is included and placed before the Odes, as it was originally written and published. Garrison offers help with meter, vocabulary, and difficult points of grammar. For advanced students, he places Horace against the background of archaic and Hellenistic Greek poetry, demonstrates the poet's debt to Catullus, and illuminates Horace's relation to his contemporaries, particularly Virgil. Biographical information and a discussion of Horace's literary persona expand our view of the poet and his works. Appendices on meter, persons mentioned in the poems, and technical terminology provide what readers end to understand topical and mythological references, rhetorical conventions, and poetic artistry. Daniel H. Garrison is Professor of Classical at Northwestern University. He is the author of Mild Frenzy: A Reading of the Hellenistic Love Epigram, The Language of Virgil, The Student's Catullus, 3rd ed., and Greek Sexual Culture. "[T]here is abundant assistance with grammatical explication and poetic diction… [as well as] useful maps of Horace's Italy and the Mediterranean basin… The best feature of the commentary is the author's often-demonstrated ability to capture essence of a Horace phrase in a pithy formulation.'--Journal of Roman Studies. "The appendices on literary terms and metrics will become favorites of all teachers who find it difficult it to simplify the patterns of Horace for their students…. Garrison's text would be especially suitable for Advanced Placement students and very appropriate foe the college class."--Classical Outlook.
