This recognition has resulted in commentaries that enticingly present basic information in a wider setting of observation and enquiry. . . . All in all, the Focus series balances simplicity and subtlety, reminding students at all levels that increasing technical precision and stretching one's interpretive curiosity are—fundamentally—one endeavor."

In conclusion, this is an engaging, learned and extremely useful commentary. It is well-directed to its intended audience of intermediate students but is also a useful resource for more advanced readers, particularly those wanting insight into the current state of scholarship on the Aeneid and significant recent debates about Book 4.

    Piero Garofalo and Daniela Selisca

    Ciak . . . si parla italiano: Cinema for Italian Conversation

    Ciak si parla italiano is a new text designed specifically for courses in Italian conversation that focus on cinema as the context for discussion.

The readings which accompany each film vary, and augment the film screenings and class discussions.
