Please note: Focus Publishing has published this book in the U.S. under a Focus ISBN. This is the same book as previously sold Denmark version, that was ISBN: 8799701685, except this is in Hardcover format. This book is the main book of Part II of the Lingua Latina series. In Part II, Roma Aeterna, the subject is Roman history. Roma Aeterna includes a wide range of classical Latin literature. The main subject of the twenty-one long chapters is Roman history as told by Roman authors themselves. A description of the monuments of Rome, is followed by a prose version of Vergil s Aeneid I-IV, with extracts from the original, and Livy s Book I, supplemented by extracts from Ovid. At first, Livy s prose is gently adapted, but most of the book integrates unadapted texts by Livy, Aulus Gellius, Nepos, Sallust, Cicero and Horace with linguistic and historical information in a seamless narrative. The Indices is a supplement which contains lists of the Roman consuls and their triumphs (Fasti consulares and triumphales), as well as name and word Indices covering the whole course.
