The Worlds of Roman Women is a Latin reader on the theme of women in the ancient world for Intermediate Latin students. It contains introductions of each selection, notes, a glossary and an index. A companion website has been designed by the authors to be used in conjunction with the text: http://www.cnr.edu/home/sas/araia/companion.html.
Instructor materials are also available online: http://www2.cnr.edu/home/araia/instruction.html.
The transition from adapted texts to original language is a difficult one for all beginning language students, but even more so with Latin students. This reader has material that will encourage the shift from decoding words to critical reading for ideas and appreciation of language and style.
