Geared toward the advanced high school or intermediate college Latin student, An Ovid Reader covers a selection of works by the great Roman poet Ovid. Passages from Amores and Metamorphoses are arranged in ways that connect for the reader, and innovative discussion questions prompt thoughtful insights into the tales.
"[A]n intelligent and refreshingly thorough approach toward teaching high-schoolers the intricacies of the Catullus/Ovid curriculum. Wickedly precise and detailed, the text has anticipated a variety of issues young minds have in accessing Latin literature. In short, the text has been meticulously prepared and designed exclusively, it appears, to counter traditionally unmet challenges students have with understanding aspects of the Catullus/Ovid syllabus."
—Norman M. Achin, Latin Teacher, Brentsville District High School, Nokesville, VA
