Et tu, Brute? : the best Latin lines ever

Mount, Harry, 1971-2022
Books, Manuscripts
There are so many Latin phrases in everyday use that often we use them without understanding the background and context within which they were actually used. Many of these phrases are humorous, but they are also a rich source of wisdom: the wisdom of the ancients. Each chapter of this book starts with a quotation and is lightly sprinkled with many more, with accompanying English translations. The background to each quotation is explained so that the context is fully understood.
