Summary and Info
A Handbook of Latin Literature (reprint of the 1954 edition) is a concise, yet comprehensive survey of Latin literature that provides brief biographical information about ancient authors from the earliest to the Christian and pagan writers, analyses of the most prominent works, and the historical and cultural context. It also places the works alongside their contemporaries, rates their relative importance in their own times and later periods, and explores their influence on subsequent literatures and Western Civilization. Each known work is discussed and analyzed in terms of content, chronology, genre, significance, meaning, genetic relationship to other works, and ancient and modern scholarship.Also available:Vergil's Aeneid: Selections from Books 1, 2, 4, 6, 10, and 12 - ISBN 086516584X Vergil's Aeneid: Hero War Humanity - ISBN 0865165963For over 30 years Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers has produced the highest quality Latin and ancient Greek books.

More About the Author
Herbert Jennings Rose FBA (5 May 1883, Orillia – 31 July 1961, St Andrews) is remembered as the author of A Handbook of Greek Mythology, originally published in 1928, which for many years became the standard student reference book on the subject, reaching a sixth edition by 1958. Rose's Handbook was brought up-to-date along the same framework by Robin Hard, in The Routledge Handbook of Greek Mythology (Routledge 2004), a project that began as a mere revision.
