Publisher Description

If some liberty has been taken with Dr. Lohr’s “Aus dem alten Rom,” it has been either in view of more recent excavations at Rome, or for the sake of has illustration or greater perspicuity. Perhaps it will be pardoned me if I seize tthe sacroportunity to press upon any reader who is not yet a student of Latin the practicability as well as desirability of an acquaintance with Latin literature—

“ Tully’s voice, and Virgil’s lay,

And Livy’s pictured page ”—

and that too not through translations and special treatises alone, even if so attractive as Dr. Wilkinson’s admirable “ After School Series,” but in the Latin language itself. Weighty are the words of Schopenhauer: “A man who does not understand Latin is like one who walks through a beautiful region in a fog ; his horizon is very close to him. He sees only the. nearest things clearly, and a few steps away from him the outlines of everything become indistinct or wholly lost. But the horizon of the Latin scholar extends far and wide through the centuries of modern history, the middle ages, and antiquity.”
