Key for Bradley's Arnold Latin Prose Composition

Postby vir litterarum » Thu Mar 13, 2008 6:37 am

A key for Bradley's Arnold's Latin Prose Composition is listed on Amazon.com, but it is currently unavailable. Does anyone know where I could purchase one of these?

I spent a few minutes looking over the composition keys. The problem for me is that I cannot imagine that I would personally wish to say such things. I don't suppose composition manuals were ever written for persons not wishing to rewrite Caesar's account of the Gallic wars. Is this why Latin lies prostrate among the arts? Have any modern professors written composition manuals for persons wishing to write about relationships, scientific discoveries, the economy, healthcare reform etc.

Same question arose last year. It was Patruus who solved the problem then too.

He posted a link (it still works!) to a TEXT-FILE with the answers, which is very nice (though without the texts). I relocated the thread in question using Textkit’s excellent Search function:

http://www.textkit.com/greek-latin-foru ... eys+arnold

In the same thread Didymus (great Bradley fan!) floats the idea of forming a group of Bradley fans to compare solutions.

He was also thinking of posting online his personal macron-marked version (when he ‘felt energetic’). That would be nice too!

Cheers,

This offer still stands, more or less. I'd probably have to wait until early May, but if we could get a few people together I'd be happy to give it a shot.

I am going to begin working through the exercises at the beginning of June, but, if you wished to wait until then, I would be interested in participating in such a group.

I see that this thread is from about a month or so ago, but I couldn't help but chime in...

I would definitely be into the idea of some sort of Bradley's Arnold group.

Funny. I just stumbled onto this thread after reading "A Real Basis for Latin Composition,"Jefferson Elmore. The School Review, Vol. 18, No. 3 (Mar., 1910), pp. 159-165. Given the similarity of your complaints and the 100 year span separating them, I guess we can't look forward to a Latin composition book that teaches students to write Latin relevant to daily experiences.

I'm going to give Bradley's Arnold anyway.
