||Caesar: Selections from his Commentarii De Bello Gallico|
Hans-Friedrich Mueller, G. Julius Caesar
Bruce A. McMenomy
This book is also required for Latin III, so continuing students will already have a copy.
||Vergil's Aeneid: Expanded Collection|
P. Vergilius Maro, Barbara W. Boyd
This OR the other Aeneid edition is required. I've listed this one as required because it's less expensive and more comprehensive. Do not feel obliged to buy this one, however, if you've already acquired the other.
||Why Vergil?: A Collection of Interpretations|
||Vergil's Aeneid: Selected Readings from Books 1, 2, 4, and 6|
Barbara W. Boyd, P. Vergilius Maro
SOME version of this text is necessary, and it has to contain the lines required (the older Boyd version does not). On the other hand, the price of this has gone through the roof, and it has been replaced in the Bolchazy-Carducci lineup with the Aeneid Expanded Collection, which I've also listed here, for a much more reasonable price.
|Latin V (Latin Literature) •  Bruce McMenomy|
||Allen and Greenough's New Latin Grammar|
J. B. Greenough, G. L. Kittredge, A. A. Howard, Benj. L. D'Ooge, Anne Mahoney
The hardbound copy may be substituted
||Horace: Selected Odes and Satire |
Q. Horatius Flaccus, Ronnie Ancona
||Writing Passion: A Catullus Reader |
C. Valerius Catullus, Ronnie Ancona
||Collins Gem Latin Dictionary : Second Edition|
D. A. Kidd
Some satisfactory Latin dictionary is required. This is probably the cheapest for the coverage it provides. It will not replace the larger research dictionaries, but at the same time it is only a fraction of the price.
||Latin Dictionary Founded on Andrew's Edition of Freund's Latin Dictionary |
Charlton T. Lewis, Charles Short, William Freund
This is one of the larger (and more expensive) dictionaries available for serious Latinists. Unlike the larger and more recent Oxford Latin Dictionary, its range extends up to about 600 A. D., and so is more useful for those interested in Mediaeval Latin. Definitely not required, though some suitable dictionary is required.
||Oxford Latin Dictionary|
P. G. W. Glare
Emphatically not required, this is probably the most comprehensive Classical Latin dictionary avaiable in English today; it is also the most expensive. Its coverage does not extend much beyond A.D. 200, however, and so it is probably not as useful as Lewis and Short for those who want to pursue later Latin.
