A Latin grammar and reader all in one when the text and workbook are used together, Learn to Read Latin presents basic Latin morphology and syntax with clear explanations and examples, and it offers direct access to great works of Latin literature even at the earliest stages of learning the language. As beginning students learn basic forms and grammar, they also gain familiarity with patterns of Latin word order and other features of style, thus becoming well prepared for later, more difficult texts.
No other beginning Latin book contains as many unaltered versions of ancient texts. Learn to Read Latin includes the writings of such authors as Caesar, Cicero, Sallust, Catullus, Vergil, and Ovid, arranged chronologically and accompanied by introductions to each author and each work. These readings serve as the chief training texts around which the book’s fifteen chapters are constructed. A workbook is also available, providing abundant drills for each chapter of the text. A flexible format allows the workbook exercises to be used in the classroom, for homework assignments, for extra individual drill work, or as a home study tool.

Andrew Keller and Stephanie Russell both teach Classics at the Collegiate School in New York City. They are the authors of Learn to Read Greek, published by Yale University Press.
“This book offers an excellent introduction to Latin, significantly improving upon Wheelock’s Latin and other existing textbooks that follow a grammar-oriented approach.”—John F. Miller, University of Virginia
(John F. Miller )
"While most elementary Latin courses are very far removed from the world of real Latin texts, Keller and Russell’s volume embraces it... with appropriate pacing for the level (high school, college, intensive work, self-study), this book should be usable by any aspiring Latin student. As a professor of classics, I can’t see how there are any other choices now for elementary Latin in serious competition with this course."—Lee Michael Fratantuono, University of Dallas
(Lee Michael Fratantuono )
“This sets the new standard for an introductory text. Lucid, attractive, richly annotated and filled with excellent reading choices, Keller & Russell will bring many new learners to mastery quickly and solidly.”—Richard P. Martin, Antony & Isabelle Raubitschek Professor of Classics, Stanford University (Richard P. Martin )
"I am very happy with this book. I like the gradual but rigorous introduction to the grammar, and I love the workbook—its exercises provide my students an opportunity to apply the various aspects of the grammatical concepts.”—Teresa Ramsby, University of Massachusetts Amherst
(Teresa Ramsby )
“These authors provide what teachers have sighed for: a text that takes nothing for granted. I single out thoroughness as the feature that makes Learn to Read Latin an original contribution.”—Hans-Friedrich Mueller, University of Florida
