Vergil's Aeneid Books I-VI : With Introduction, Notes, Vocabulary, and Grammatical Appendix by Clyde Pharr

by Vergil

Condition: Good-/none

A rare classic book published in 1930. This is a first edition book written in Latin. There is writing on the inside cover and the cover page.

This edition of selections from Vergil's Aeneid (the Shield of Aeneas from Book 8 (8.608-731) and the Camilla sequence from Book 11 (11.498-596, 664-835), totaling 394 lines) is designed for high school and undergraduate use. It follows the special format of Clyde Pharr's widely-used edition of Books 1-6,1 like Boyd's recent volume of selections from 1-6, 10 and 12.2 namely the provision of vocabulary (and commentary) on the same page as the text. Boyd's larger volume included all passages on the syllabus for the Advanced Placement course 'Latin: Vergil', whereas the book under review, designed as a supplement (p.vii), is for use in other teaching and reading situations by fans of Pharr's presentation style. Whether teachers of Latin choose this edition will depend mainly on their opinion of this pedagogic strategy, but the commentary is well-pitched to its target audience, explaining difficult constructions and never specifically citing other scholarship. Bibliographies by theme offer further reading for studious teachers or students.
