Latin Poetry

Hi. I've had a basic grounding in Latin grammar and prose translation. I'm basically on my own to continue my education in the field now, though, and I'm looking for resources to learn about Latin poetry. I looked over the books textkit has available for download, and none of them really seem to touch on meter. If anyone can recommend any textbooks for me to pursue my studies, I'll be grateful...and, uhh, stuff.

Know this handbook?

Has anyone ever heard of or used this book?

by Clayton K. Harrop -

It's not a published textbook, but a study guide developed by Mr. Harrop for his class.

Pro nautis

multi nuper nautas maledixerunt. nautis innocentibus, nunc mihi defendendi sunt, ne vestra mendacia vigescant. quo usque tandem abutemini patientia mea? numquam--numquam!--alicubi nautae parvos pueros vulnerabant. bonorum virorum obtrectatores estis. nautaene esse non potestis? invidetisne igitur his? ego haec intellego, nautae vident. vos tamen vivitis. vivitis? vos etiam in hoc forum venitis! fugite, mendaces fungi. heu! fleo.

BLD 294

The Sentence in question is:
Ille fortis Germanorum dux suos convocavit et hoc modo animos eorim confirmavit.

I have managed to hack out:
At that fortress of the Germans the leader gathered his men and confirmed their spirits with this method (or plan).

Is this a feasible translation and can suos mean "his men"?

Verb/translation question

In my Latin text book, I have been learning about verbs. However, I came across a verb (?) form ending that I am not familiar with:


This word was used in the following sentence:

Code: Select all
  _                _             _
Quorum arte aedificatae sunt urbes?

I was always under the impression that the AE ending was for nouns only. Could you please explain?

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone knows of any database listing movies that use Latin in the dialog. I'm interested in pedagogical ...

Argh... lost book

Last week I saw a fantastic old little book which listed all the possible endings for parts of the Greek verb and parsed them. Great I thought. I'll buy it next time when I have some money on me.

Does anyone know what this book is called so I can track it down?
