Sobre o livro
Often seen as the bulky relic of school curricula long forgotten, Latin seems to have lost its punch in the popular conscious. Oxford academic Nicola Gardini, however, argues the case for its lasting importance, offering a personal and passionate defence of the beauty and future of the language. Gardini encourages us to dig to the roots of our own language and examine how Latin has influenced the ways in which we communicate. Gardini's instant bestseller is a spirited celebration of Latin's cultural past, present and future.
