Following the success of Ingo Gildenhard’s recent textbook ‘Cicero, Against Verres: 2.1.53-86: Latin Text with Introduction, Study Questions, Commentary and English Translation’, Open Book Publishers is delighted to announce the forthcoming publication of
‘Virgil, Aeneid 4.1–299: Latin text, study questions, commentary, and interpretive essays’ by Ingo Gildenhard.
Paperback ISBN: 978-1-909254-15-2. Price: £14.95.
This work focuses on one of the Latin A-Level set texts on the OCR syllabus 2013-2015: Virgil, Aeneid 4.1-299.
A unique teaching tool, it offers the original Latin text of this section, a commentary, study questions, and interpretative essays. Ingo Gildenhard’s incisive commentary in particular is designed to guide readers through, and encourage them beyond, what is prescribed by the A-level syllabus. Detailed linguistic explanation combines with and encourages critical analysis and discussion of the most recent scholarly thought.
Free to read online, digital and paper editions will be available from our website http://www.openbookpublishers.com/product/162 and from traditional book retailers from November 2012. We are also very pleased to be working with The Classics Library again to produce an online interactive edition allowing commentary and discussion of the text at a paragraph by paragraph level by The Classics Library members.
We hope that this textbook will again prove to be a useful Open Access teaching resource.
If you would like to pre-order and be the very first to receive this new work, or any further information about the work, please contact sales [at] openbookpublishers [dot] com.
