The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 29
Classics. — Proiessor Sale
In the Junior Latin Class the work will comprise (1) The systematic study of some definite portions of the works of the more easily understood prose and verse authors, together with the Grammar of the Latin language, and such points in the history and antiquities of Rome as present themselves in the course of the work. (2) Occasional practice in the translation of easy unprepared passages. (3) The translation of easy passages of English into Latin prose.
Every student will find it necessary to provide himself with some good Lexicon and Grammar. White and Riddle's, or Andrews's, or Smith's Lexicon, and Madvig's Grammar are recommended. Teubner's cheap editions of Latin authors will be used in class, and it is recommended that every student obtain for reference and general use Teubner's complete editions of the works of Cicero, Cæsar, Virgil, and Ovid.
In the Senior Latin Class the general course of study will be similar to that followed in the Junior Latin Class; but the work will be of a more advanced character, and the portions of authors selected for study will usually be such as present greater difficulties to the student. The choice of authors, however, will be to some extent guided by the announcements of subjects for the B.A. Degree Examination, made from year to year by the New Zealand University.
In the Greek Classes the course of study will be, mutatis mutandis, similar to that followed in the Latin Classes. In page 23 the Junior Class the portions of authors selected for study will usually he taken from the works of Xenophon (or the easier dialogues of Plato) and Euripides. Every student will find it necessary to provide himself with Liddell and Scott's Lexicon, and Jelf's Greek Grammar. In the Senior Class the selection of authors will to some extent be guided by the announcements made by the New Zealand University.
Teubner's cheap editions will in all cases be used in class.
