A companion to Bloomsbury's popular two-volume Greek to GCSE, this is the first course for Latin students that directly reflects the curriculum in a clear, concise and accessible way. Enhanced by colour artwork and text features, the books support the new OCR specification for Latin (first teaching 2016) as well as meeting the needs of later students, both at university and beyond. Written by two experienced school teachers, one also an examiner, the course is based on a keen understanding of what pupils find difficult, concentrating on the essentials and on the explanation of principles in both accidence and syntax: minor irregularities are postponed and subordinated so that the need for rote learning is reduced. User-friendly, it also gives pupils a firm foundation for further study. Part 1 covers the basics and is self-contained, with its own reference section. It outlines the main declensions, a range of active tenses and a vocabulary of 275 Latin words to be learned. Pupil confidence is built up by constant consolidation of the material covered. After the preliminaries, each chapter concentrates on stories with one source or subject: the Fall of Troy, the journeys of Aeneas, the founding of Rome and the early kings, providing an excellent introduction to Roman culture alongside the language study.

Gibt es ein Werk, das für uns so wichtig und prägend ist wie Ilias und Odyssee für die Antike? »Ja!«, sagt der Erfinder der modernen Fantasy: Die nordische Sage von Sigurd und Gudrún! Und J.R.R.Tolkien dichtete selbst den ehernen Stoff der Edda und des Wölsungenlieds für unsere Zeit neu. Lesen Sie, wie Sigurd den fürchterlichen Drachen Fáfnir tötet. Wie er die schlafende Brynhild erweckt aus einem Feuerwall. Und wie am Hof der Nibelungen große Liebe entbrannte und auch großer Hass. Tolkien schöpft hier ein Werk von unvergleichlicher Sprachkraft und einem Rhythmus, der alle Sinne erfasst. Der reich kommentierte Band gibt Tolkiens Originalverse neben der deutschen Übersetzung wieder.

Platons Dialog »Phaidon« entstand vermutlich zwischen 380 und 390 v. Chr. und gehört zu den bis heute wirkmächtigsten Texten der antiken Philosophie. Benannt ist der Dialog nach dem griechischen Philosophen Phaidon von Elis, der in der Rahmenhandlung von der Verurteilung und Hinrichtung seines Lehrers Sokrates wegen Religionsfrevels und Verführung der Jugend berichtet. Dialogisch wird dabei ein weites Spektrum von Themen behandelt, so die vorbildlich gelassene Haltung des Sokrates angesichts eines krassen Fehlurteils, die Einheit von Leben und Handeln sowie die Frage nach einer möglichen Existenz nach dem Tod. Nicht zuletzt beeindruckt »Phaidon« durch Platons literarisch ausgestaltete, präzise Schilderung von Sokrates' Todeskampf nach Einnahme des Pflanzengifts Coniin.
