About this book
From the spells of Harry Potter to the use of Latin in Asterix, Latin master James explains how the language can be interesting, relevant and well worth studying. Will appeal to current and former students alike.
As a Latin schoolmaster, Simon James frequently comes across challenges of "boring" (in other words difficult), "irrelevant," and "dead" ... and it isn't always just the pupils. Latin is one of those tricky subjects that comes under assault from all kinds of non cognoscenti who claim its anachronistic tendencies an easy target.
