iucundi atque felicis

Stuck on Wheelock again:
At vita illius modi aequi aliquid iucundi atque felicis continet.
But a life of that calm manner contains something of joyful and happy men.
OR ... But the life of that man contains something of the calm manner of joyful and happy men.

ab ore

I'm not sure about this from Wheelock:
'Tantalus sitiens flumina ab ore fugientia tangere desiderabat.'

I'm assuming it means: 'Tantalus, being thirsty, desired to touch the rushing river by his mouth.' or Because Tantalus was thirsty, he wanted to drink from the rushing river. I'm not sure what the 'ab' of 'ab ore' is doing there. Wouldn't just 'ore' by itself be correct? Unless it's ablative of agent, in which case can a mouth be ...

Wheelock - illa

Hi all,<br /><br />I'm working through my Wheelock, and have a problem with this sentence from chapter 9 'In illo libro(in that book), illa de hoc homine scribet'.<br /><br />I looked at the 'scribet' (scribo, scribere) and thought '3rd person sing' - (s/he will write), so looked for a noun or pronoun to suit. I saw 'illa' and thought nominative sing fem - 'That woman will write about this man.' But the answers took illa ...

Rant against Wheelock's Latin

I have read posts on the list asking about what textbooks to use, and I thought I should offer some advice in this, even at the risk of offending the partisans of Wheelock. <br /><br /> Some years ago I might have said that the book might be a good thing for a student who does not have much time to devote to Latin, because the chapters are very short, and each one presents very ...
