Aulus Gellius, a well-educated nobleman, is best known today for a collection of observations titled Noctes Atticae, a project he began during the long winter nights he spent in Attica, the region of Greece where Athens is located. The selections chosen for this reader touch on diverse aspects of Roman culture and can be easily understood and translated by intermediate students. For the Second Edition, Chambers added three new chapters, one of which centers on Aulus Gellius’s translation of a letter to Aristotle by Philip of Macedon announcing the birth of his son Alexander.
A classroom-tested book, The Attic Nights of Aulus Gellius, Second Edition, will motivate second-year students to continue their course of study while providing a much-needed alternative for Latin instructors seeking accessible textbooks for their students. A Teacher Key accompanies the text.
