This collection of 80 passages for unseen translation will provide
entertainment and experience for students of advanced Latin and
could also be used as a class reader. The unseens have been
included in three separate sections, but they were all chosen as
enjoyable and challenging for students in the twenty-first century.
Part 1, called Saucy Unseens, concentrates on the bizarre habits of
the Roman emperors, in a set of stories taken from Suetonius and
the Historia Augusta. Never boring, though not always truthful,
these stories should engage all comers. Passages in Part 2 were
chosen from the first six books of Virgil's Aeneid. The
introduction includes a set of notes on the scansion of dactylic
hexameters. The texts of Part 3 were chosen from writings of or
about Cicero. They represent different areas of his output and
include extracts from philosophical works, speeches and letters.
