This is the all-new edition of the legendary course by Clément Desessard. Revised and updated, it also features extra notes on culture. The author claimed that Latin is a lively language, still of relevance today. He put together dialogues on everyday situations, and on various literary texts, to illustrate the use of written Latin from ancient times through to today: Cicero and Pliny the Younger meet Gregory of Tours, Francis Bacon and even Saint-Exupéry, in this Latin translation ofThe Little Prince. Not to mention Winnie the Pooh by British author A. A Milne.
