The acclaimed "Oxford Latin Course" has been completely revised and restructured in the light of a national survey of Classics teachers. The course is in three parts, each with an accompanying Teacher's Book. Parts I-III are built around a narrative detailing the life of Horace, based closely on historical sources which develops an understanding of the times of Cicero and Augustus.
