Taken from the "QED" series of teach-yourself Latin articles published in the "Daily Telegraph" and the "Sunday Telegraph", this book aims to give its readers a basic knowledge of Latin in a short space of time. It covers just enough to give a basic understanding of Latin, and to enable readers to read and understand parts of the Bayeux Tapestry, the love poetry of Catullus, or Saint Jerome's "Vulgate". This book also aims to give a deeper understanding of modern European languages, such as English, French, Spanish, and Italian, through an understanding of the ancient language at their heart.
