[A]n intelligent and refreshingly thorough approach toward teaching high-schoolers the intricacies of the Catullus/Ovid curriculum. Wickedly precise and detailed, the text has anticipated a variety of issues young minds have in accessing Latin literature. In short, the text has been meticulously prepared and designed exclusively, it appears, to counter traditionally unmet challenges students have with understanding aspects of the Catullus/Ovid syllabus.-Norman M. Achin, Latin Teacher, Brentsville District High School, Nokesville, VAThe book would work best as a classroom textbook (which it is designed for) rather than for personal reading. An independent student reader might be happier with Jones. DeHoratius is evidently American in style, but for this European teacher that is part of its charm; Beginners today are fortunate in the Ovid revival and can enjoy their advanced reading with such lively textbooks as this, written with both enthusiasm and rigour.- John Bulwer, Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2009.04.17
Ed DeHoratius has taught all levels of Latin in both public and private high schools for 12 years, as well as courses in ancient history, Classical literature, and medieval literature. When not spending time with his two sons Will and Matt and his wife Liz, he enjoys writing, coaching soccer, working on their house, and cooking.
