Ovid Latin reader

Postby Jeff Tirey » Mon Dec 22, 2003 11:48 pm

I just received in the mail today Allen and Greenough's Ovid reader.

What would forum members like to see first: Virgil or Ovid? Both readers are about the same size and each comes with the typical notes and specialized vocabulary.

Is it the full works of either author?
If so, I would have to go for Virgil here, much as I am currently enjoying the Amores.

No, for Virgil it's the Aeneid Books I-VI and for Ovid it's mostly selections from the Metamorphoses.

Notes? Special Vocabulary?

I need Virgil for examination purposes and since I'm not accustomed to that erratic word order etc. I would definitely go for that!
