Puer Romanus

Please visit the main website of LATINUM at

Appleton and Jones'  'Puer Romanus'.

Appleton's reader is suitable for a 21st century intermediate student of Latin, although even a beginner will benefit from extended oral input in the language. The reader is in the form of a novella, told from the perspective of a young Brundisian boy, called Lucius. This books is justifiably famous - and remains one of a handful of such texts ever written.
