Actually, it’s a fair sight more interesting than a lot of the philosophy texts in Latin. More blood, for instance. 8 years ago
Education is wasted on the young. A tired saying but one I recognize the wisdom in more each day. I took four years of Latin in high school, enough that I should be able to meet this goal. Problem is, I cheated so much that I never really learned the language half as well as I might have if I’d just applied myself. At the time, I thought, why would I ever really need more than the Hail Mary in Latin. Then it turns out I develop an abiding interest in roman history and a deep appreciation for romance languages. On top of that, I get intrigued by issues of historiagraphy among the early romans. Serves me right to have to relearn it, along with the Math I’ve forgotten.
I think my first step is going to be to finish the Annals in english, and then sign up for a Latin class at The Seattle Language Academy. 8 years ago
I just finished Latin 101, wherein we technically did read several short sentences from Tacitus. However, I am really looking forward to the time where I can curl up with a book of Catullus poetry. Right now, I mostly use my blossoming skills to annoy people with comments on the Latin roots of common phrases. For example- Did you know that word supercilious comes from the Latin word for eyebrow: “supercilium” ? !!!! 8 years ago
