New from Open Book Publishers: Tacitus, Annals, 15.20­-23, 33­-45:

Following on from the success of their Cicero Against Verres,  Open Book Publishers now offer a new publication of this A2 level set text, comprising the Latin Text,  Study Aids with Vocabulary, and Commentary, translated and edited by Mathew Owen and Ingo Gildenhard.

This course book, the third in Open Book’s series of classics textbooks, offers a portion of the original Latin text, study aids with vocabulary, and a commentary.  Designed to stretch and stimulate readers, Owen’s and Gildenhard’s incisive commentary will be of particular interest to students of Latin at both high school and undergraduate level. It extends beyond detailed linguistic analysis and historical background to encourage critical engagement with Tacitus’ prose and discussion of the most recent scholarly thought.

Aimed at widening access to Classics among high school students and undergraduates, Tacitus can be read for free on-line at http://www.openbookpublishers.com/product/215/.

Like other books in this series, Tacitus is also available in an interactive format, developed by The Classics Library, which enables teachers to comment on and ask questions about every aspect of the text.  This interactive version can be accessed via the link above.

Open Book Publishers is a non-profit organisation, run by academics in Cambridge and London,   committed to making high-quality research freely available to readers around the world.
