Clifton Jones Reviews Stories from Paul the Deacon

When I was learning Latin I remember getting old (some Victorian!) Latin texts. There was another problem, going from Latin lessons to real Latin texts is a huge jump. Here the author has chosen later texts written by Paul the Deacon (about 8th century). The Latin is simpler as a result and it makes the book a very useful stepping stone from Latin lessons to classical Latin authors. I went from lessons to Caesar, and this book would have made that transition a lot easier. I’m now in the stage of my Latin having gone rusty, and this book looks an ideal way for me to recapture some of that lost prowess. Also it has a vocabulary at the back. Yes I have a Latin dictionary, but experience with other books has shown me the value of having a vocabulary or dictionary at the back.
