Revue de presse

"Over the last decade, there has been a minor Latin revival, but it is a watered-down version of the language that has been revived. Rigorous Latin lessons are as dead as can be, except in a handful of grammar schools and private schools. So N.M. Gwynne is entering upon virgin territory with this timely guide to learning Latin properly. A former businessman and now a Latin tutor, he had a smash hit last year with Gwynne's Grammar , a rigorous guide to English grammar. Now he's applied the same winning formula to the most influential language of them all" (The Spectator The Spectator)

"This little book makes a great case for learning Latin, not least because of the countless Latin words and phrases in our daily English" (The Independent on Sunday The Independent on Sunday)

Présentation de l'éditeur

‘Latin is "it", the most wonderful "thing". It is mind-enhancing, character-improving, enthralling, exciting, deeply satisfying, and valuable. My solid determination is to spare no pains to do it the justice that its importance demands.’

Mr Gwynne, author of the Sunday Times bestselling phenomenon Gwynne’s Grammar, is just as emphatic about the importance of Latin as he is about the importance of grammar. From the novice to the more well-versed, Gwynne’s Latin is essential for anyone interested in learning Latin; Mr Gwynne promises to teach you more Latin in half an hour than you would learn from years of being taught Latin at school. He also includes a fascinating section on everyday Latin usage, which discusses all the Latin words and idioms we still use today, such as ‘quid pro quo’ and ‘sui generis’.

Though we need no further convincing ­– as we know, Mr Gwynne is never wrong – here are just some of the many reasons why Latin is utterly wonderful:

- Latin is an academic subject easy enough for the least intelligent of us to grasp all the basic elements of, and yet difficult enough to be demanding for its greatest scholars.
- For well over a thousand years it was the means of communication that united the whole of Europe culturally and in every other significant way.
- It is the direct ancestor of, between them, the five most widely-spoken European languages, and both of the official South American languages.
- It is the ancestor and source of more than half of the English language, partly directly and partly through French, which for some centuries was England’s official language.

Following in the same beautifully designed footsteps of Gwynne’s Grammar, Gwynne’s Latin will teach you all the fundamentals of Latin quickly, thoroughly and better than all the competition.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent book! Exceptional 26 mai 2014
Par ggsimplydelicious - Publié sur Amazon.com

This book is not only a compact size for bringing wherever you want to go but it is exceptionally written. As the author states, it is meant to provide you a Latin learning resource up to a high level, to prepare you to learn more through reading, etc. It is finally a foundation resource for learning Latin much needed. I personally think Mr. Gwynne's way of teaching Latin is proper and serves to educate you as a Classics student would be in the prime of learning pre-1960's. I simply love this book, now one of my favorite language books ever.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Bonus, as the Latins would say 25 juin 2014
Par Leah Doughty - Publié sur Amazon.com
Gwynne's Latin is good, as good as advertised. His method works pretty well. I am taking my time through his curriculum, of which he holds strong opinions about right and wrong ways to do things, but it's working. He's big on having his students learn things by heart. But really, what other way is there?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An excellent if demanding book 23 juin 2014
Par J. Hardin - Publié sur Amazon.com

This is an excellent and demanding approach to the study of Latin. Gwynne is very sure of himself, and should be, he is an expert. Highly recommended for those who wish to deal with Latin, or are required to do so. Highly interesting and enlightening!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A nice feature of the book is its size 8 avril 2015
Par Robert Dale - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
The most straightforward approach to Latin I've read. Gwynne gives clear, no-nonsense advice on the learning of Latin. He affords insight on how English and Latin grammar keep company. A nice feature of the book is its size. You can stick it in a pocket or purse for those moments when you want something absorbing to think about.
3.0 étoiles sur 5 An unpolished gem 28 août 2015

I'll compare this to Wheelock's (Wheelock's Latin 7th Edition (The Wheelock's Latin Series)).


* A nice section explaining why memorization is essential to get a good grasp of Latin (some modern Latin teachers think other methods are better, but they themselves learned the classical way).
* A grammar summary is included and referred to in the main text.
* Some vocabulary that you often don't find in normal introductory Latin textbooks is included (e.g. "sometimes" - nonnumquam)
* Exercises are included in each chapter with solutions in the back.

* Compared with Wheelock, the number of example sentences and exercises is much fewer. This makes learning harder.
* No real explanation is given of word stressing (Wheelock has this).
* Macrons are given for new words only and then skipped in the example sentences and exercises (you have to look them up at the back of the book). Wheelock macronizes everything. Anything less seems lazy on the part of the author.
* Macrons are a bit inconsistent (these are probably typos)
* Some words are used in example sentences that aren't included in the back of the book (again, probably a mistake)

This book needs a new edition with corrections made and all words macronized for it to be a serious contender against more established books such as Wheelock.
