it's a false translation

As soon as I glanced at the first page of Fitzgerald's Aeneid in the bookstore, I was cured of any desire to buy it or read it. I thought "Why doesn't he write 'Arms and the man I sing'? That's what 'Arma virumque cano' means." I don't want a translation where the translator puts in what is not there. It's different if you are Chapman or Dryden or somebody, and are trying to make it ...

Greek books are hard to find

It's not as easy as it used to be to find non-Loeb ancient texts, even if you live in a town with a large university. When I tried to replace my OCT Lucretius, I was told that Oxford has stopped publishing that series, so I had to be content with a Loeb.
I believe that the Cambridge Greek and Latin Classics are also no longer being published.
Babae!
I have to replace my books once ...

racism in the classical world

I guess I should have posted this on this board, instead of on open discussion.
Do you think that there was racism in ancient Greece or Rome?

racism in the classical world

Here's an interesting question for you. Was there racism in ancient Greece or Rome? There was prejudice, bigotry, and chauvinism, but was there racism?
I have formed my own opinion on this question.

a new member, sort of

Sheesh! I had forgotten that I was a member of this group. I'll introduce myself again.
I am a male, 60 years old. I took two years of Latin in high school, but for the rest I am self-taught in Latin and Greek. (I started my Greek with "Homeric Greek: a book for beginners" by Clyde Pharr.) I used my copy of Goodwin's Greek Grammar to pieces (it was a softcover), so now I am ...

Waugh Introduces New Edition of Greek Poetry

Waugh Introduces New Edition of Greek Poetry
Posted on June 7, 2017 by Jeffrey Manley



References to Waugh’s novels are used to introduce a review of the first volume of a new edition of The Greek Anthology published by Harvard University Press and The Loeb Library. The review is by Hayden Pelliccia and appears in a recent issue of the New York Review of Books. One of the poems in the anthology is the epigram ...


Complete Nuntii Latini?

Salvete!

Does anyone around here have the entire corpus of the Finnish Nuntii Latini (or at least the 2009-2017 bit)?

Valete,

Carolus Raeticus

Hello and thank you

Hi,

I am a new member of this forum. I discovered Textkit while I was searching online for a decent Latin textbook. I stumbled on the suggestions for beginning learners and that's how I got to know Latin for Beginners by Benjamin L. D'Ooge. I am gratefully using this textbook now to relearn Latin myself (as I've forgotten most of it since I left secondary school) and to teach it for the first time to ...

Understanding οὐ and οὔ τις in Illiad 1:86,88

I checked the "Pharr Discussions By Chapter" and did not seen anything to help me.

I have trouble understanding the use of οὐ at the beginning of 1:86.

Is it referenced two lines later with οὔ τις being an emphasis?

thanks,


Latin Fundamentals by Hettich & Maitland?

Anyone ever come across this book? I picked it up from a used bookstore a while back. It was first published in 1929, and I think I have the 1950 edition. Compared to most Latin texts I've seen, it presents the grammar in a much more orderly fashion. It lumps together pertinent information, like going over several tenses and their endings in one lesson, versus separating them in random lessons. My brain likes the bigger ...
