Cambridge University Press | July 26, 1991 | Trade Paperback

Not yet rated | write a review
This is a collection of eleven plays, written and devised by second and third year pupils using the Cambridge Latin Course. The language and background draw on Unit 1 of the Cambridge Latin Course, although students of other texts will be able to read and enjoy the collection. Unusual vocabulary is explained and there is also a consolidated vocabulary that includes macrons for pronunciation guidance. The casts of the eleven plays call for four to twenty-three characters with speaking parts of various lengths. The book also presents a vivid picture of Pompei''s fiery end, referring not only to Pliny''s ancient reports, but also to newspaper and artistic reports from more recent eruptions. This collection of playlets makes a stimulating supplement to beginners'' courses, including, but certainly not limited to the Cambridge Latin Course. Pupils'' amusement and involvement will help the teacher who finds the use of oral Latin increasingly helpful.
