Excerpt from Handbook of Latin Poetry: Containing Selections From Ovid, Virgil, and Horace, With Notes References
This book owes its existence to a popular demand. Soon after the publication of the Preparatory Latin Prose Book, the editor of that work began to be solicited by teachers in various parts of the country to prepare a book of Latin Poetry on the same plan. It was not, however, until these solicitations had become general and urgent, that the idea of undertaking the preparation of such a work was seriously entertained.
In the arrangement of the text, the editors have fol lowed what they conceive to be the order of difficulty, so far as it relates to the authors themselves, and therefore the order in which they should be severally studied but in respect to the portions selected from each author, the arrangement found in most school editions has been fol lowed. The advantages, in a classical and educational point of View, of reading an author comparatively easy, like Ovid, before taking poetry so difficult as that of Virgil and Horace, will not be overlooked by those who are desirous of finding and pursuing the best methods.
