IV. Sight Reading from Prose Authors and from Ovid.

The examination in the authors will include (besides idiomatic
translation) questions on the construction and subject-matter, and,
in Vergil, on the prosody.

For collateral reading are suggested : — Plutarch's Lives of Cato
and Cicero ; Forsyth's (or Trollope's) Cicero ; Nettleship's Vergil, —
in " Green's Classical Writers " ( Appleton) ; Martin's Horace, — in
" Ancient Classics for English Readers " (Lippincott) ; the sections
in Cruttwell's History of Roman Literature bearing on the above
authors.

Students in both courses should, if possible, have Harper's
Latin Dictionary ; Allen & Greenough's [edition of i888] (or,
Harkness', or, Gildersleeve's) Latin Grammar ; Cruttwell's Roman
Literature ; Smith's Classical Dictionary ; Becker's Gallus ; a His-
tory of Rome, — Mommsen's History (for the Republic) and
Merivale's (for the Empire) are the fullest and best ; good compends
are Merivale's General History of Rome, Leighton's History, the
sections on Rome in Fisher's Universal History, and Gilman's Story
of Rome.

In both courses, in connection with the minute study of the
assigned texts, there should be rapid or "sight" reading from the
start. For this exercise in acquiring a large vocabulary and the
ability to easily use the language and literature, are recommended
such books as Eutropius, Nepos, Caesar's Gallic War, Cicero's
Tusculan Questions, the last six books of Vergil's Aeneid, the Latin
Testament, the Colloquies of Erasmus.
