If you enjoyed Amo, Amas, Amat by Harry Mount last year, then we are sure you will love Latin Love Letters. Charlotte Higgins rediscovers the best bits of Latin poetry and brings it right in to the heart of the modern day. Very accessible and a brilliant way to return to or discover some classic Latin works.
It wasn’t just under-floor heating, hot baths and roads that the Romans did first and best…
Remember Latin translation? All those arrows and ramparts, and centurions forever striking camp… Let’s cut straight to the fun part. Forget about battles and spears and rediscover all the best bits of Latin love poetry – from Ovid’s tips on picking up girls and how to get away with cheating, to Catullus on how to deal with a broken heart and Virgil’s textbook case of how not to dump a girlfriend.
Latin Love Lessons is the perfect sequel to Amo, amas, amat – an approachable frolic around Roman romance. Pep up your love life with help from the original Latin lovers.
