Poor Latin! - Style blossoms from Latin school assignments
Latin has been taught in German schools since the early Middle Ages, making it the oldest subject in Germany. Whether in medieval monastic schools or grammar schools nationwide, then as now pupils confuse accusative and ablative, can't distinguish imperfect from perfect and conjugate verbs in active instead of passive. Poor Latin is a wonderful collection of style blossoms and "master translations" from Latin school assignments, completed by humorous illustrations. Poor Latin is the perfect book for those who want to go back to their own Latin lessons, learn from the mistakes of others and at the same time laugh heartily at them.
Veni, vidi, vici?
In Poor Latin you will see that not only for you the plusquam perfect was a little too far in the past and Cicero's sentences after 10 lines without point and comma were simply confusing. Poor Latin also offers teachers brilliant entertainment - you will surely remember with a smile how it was for you in Latin lessons and which style blossoms your students achieved so well! Whatever your relationship with Latin, poor Latin will certainly have a cathartic effect on you!
