Presented via the natural method by Hans Ørberg, Vergilii Aeneis Libros I et IV allows students to read lightly altered Latin texts. It includes extensive selections from the text of the Aeneid Books 1 and 4, along with indices of vocabulary and names, and marginal notes in Latin.
This text is suitable for use in conjunction with Ørberg’s second-year text Roma Aeterna. (Lingua Latina Pars II), also available from Hackett, or any third year Latin course that studies Vergil.
About the Author:
Hans Henning Orberg (1920–2010) received his MA in English, French and Latin from the University of Copenhagen in 1946. He taught at various Danish high schools until 1963 and at the Grenaa Gymnasium until 1988. From 1953 to 1961 he served on the staff of the Nature Method Institute, Copenhagen. He is the author of the Latin course "Lingua Latina secundum naturae rationem explicate" (1955-56); the course was revised in 1990-91, with a number of supplements, under the title "Lingua Latina per se illustrate." His books were published by Domus Latina, a publishing house he founded in Denmark, and they are distributed in the English-speaking world by Hackett Publishing.
