The Burden of Remembering...
This is a fabulous book ! I'm 75 ( and took Latin in High School ) and am so thankful for this book. I also bought one for my artistic son who devoured it. Thank you to Anya and especially to Bill and Les Belles Lettres for this work.
Any way to purchase this book not using PayPal?
Alas no 'PayPal' account, any other way of purchasing?
The book sounds wonderful. Where can I find a list of the contents before purchasing? Thank you.
I just turned 71 and your emails and website have reawakened my interest in the Classics as I look at what has happened in the world. I studied Latin for three years in high school and wrote my provincial high school leaving exams for both Latin Grammar and Latin Literature. And, as the num who urged us to take Latin in high school told us, I’ve never regretted those studies. They prepared me for my study of History in my undergraduate years. Now that I am mostly retired—I do substitute teach from time to time—I am looking forward to revisiting those old texts and being introduced to some new ones as well, those that my Catholic high school prevented me from reading
As far as I understood, the Classics started to fade away before World War One, not with and after it. There is a book "The tyranny of Greece over Germany", from 1935. Nothing could be more wrong. In 1935, those had come to power who had never studied the Classics, and pushed them back even more (though abusing them at the same time, where it came in handy). Heinrich Himmler explicitly rejected the Classics represented by his father who was the director of a Humanistic Gymnasium in Munich. Therefore, the discussion about the Classics in the trenches may have occurred due to the realization that the catastrophe had to do with a lack of Classics.
I sent a payment through PayPal, but the "return to merchant website" didn't work.
So, now you have my $. How do I send my shipping details?
Where is this book shipping from that costs $14???
