Avem Occidere Mimicam To Kill A Mockingbird Translated into Latin

Written by Harper Lee

Avem Occidere Mimicam To Kill A Mockingbird Translated into Latin Synopsis

Already translated into over 40 languages, this is the first translation of To Kill A Mockingbird into Latin. Andrew Wilson has made the translation suitable for students at any level of proficiency. While respecting Harper Lee's style, Wilson keeps to the requirements of the Cambridge Latin Course (which is used across the world). Uniquely, this is a book that can be sold globally (after all, Latin is widely studied in non-English speaking countries as well). It is the perfect gift book for all lovers of literature.

Avem Occidere Mimicam To Kill A Mockingbird Translated into Latin Press Reviews

Someone rare has written this very fine novel, a writer with the liveliest sense of life and the warmest, most authentic humour. A touching book; and so funny, so likeable. -- Truman Capote * (on To Kill A Mockingbird) * There is humour as well as tragedy in this book, besides its faint note of hope for human nature; and it is delightfully written. -- Sunday Times * (on To Kill A Mockingbird) * On nearly every page there is some felicity of composition to be admired, some turn of phrase that arouses admiration for the translator. In its entirety, it is an extraordinary work - it is a wonderfully good read. -- Theodore Brennan, Professor of Philosophy and Classics, Cornell University * (on Andrew Wilson's translation of Harry Potter) * There is actually a substantial body of evidence that children who study Latin outperform their peers when it comes to reading, reading comprehension and vocabulary. -- Toby Young * Spectator *
