Living With A Dead Language : My Romance with Latin Paperback
by Ann Patty
After thirty-five years as a book editor in New York City, Ann Patty stopped working and moved to the country.
Bored, aimless, and lost in the woods, she hoped to challenge her restless, word-loving brain by beginning a serious study of Latin at local colleges.
As she begins to make sense of Latin grammar and syntax, her studies open unexpected windows into her own life.
Along the way, she meets an impassioned cast of characters: professors, students and classicists outside of academia who keep Latin very much alive.
