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.

Biographie de l'auteur

Now living in County Wexford, Ireland, and in his 70s, N M Gwynne was formerly a successful businessman in London and Australia. On retirement in the 1980s, he gradually took up teaching, at first privately. He soon found that he had a clear vocation for teaching, and that his traditional methods, universal up to the 1960s and refined and perfected century after century up till then, had suddenly become all but unique because of the revolution in teaching that had taken place worldwide at around that time. Subjects he has been teaching - in classrooms, in lecture halls, and nowadays mostly privately - include English, Latin, Greek, French, German, mathematics, history, classical philosophy, natural medicine, the elements of music, and 'How to start up and run your own business'. Now with an international word-of-mouth reputation, Mr Gwynne has been flown around the world in order to teach his pupils. And thanks to the internet and Skype, he has sometimes found himself, at different times in a single day, teaching children and adults as far apart as in India, in Europe and in western USA.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent book! Exceptional 26 mai 2014

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!
