"Reading Latin Poetry Aloud," by Clive Brooks

Postby JDB » Fri Aug 29, 2008 3:24 pm

I was wondering if anyone has had the chance to look over "Reading Latin Poetry Aloud: A Practical Guide to Two Thousand Years of Verse," by Clive Brooks. (http://www.amazon.com/Reading-Latin-Poe ... 245&sr=8-2) I saw it in a used bookstore, and was quite intrigued by it -- especially because it comes with an audio CD. On the other hand, I tend to be quite picky about my pronunciation, and I don't want to buy something if the audio is going to make me cringe! Thoughts anyone? Or have you found reviews or discussions of it somewhere online that I missed?

Thanks,
Jeremy

Have you read the two reviews at the bottom of this Amazon page?

No, I hadn't seen those.... Didn't think to check amazon.co.uk, and not just amazon.com. Anyway, thanks!
