More About These Titles…
Disciplina Clericalis, Petrus Alphonsus This collection, never before edited with notes, is a source for Medieval fables and tales, taken from many different sources; examples are given in the back of the book with notes. This is the perfect sourcebook for readings for classes at the intermediate level.
Fables by Phaedrus Fables are always fun for students. Here not only are the Phaedrus fables, with excellent notes, but also the fables of Aesop and Babrius (in English), the Medieval versions (in Latin with notes) and LaFontaine. A wonderful book for mixed classes: the lower level students can read the Phaedrus and English, and the upper level students can read the Phaedrus and the Medieval Latin. Fun for everyone!
Plautus for Reading and Production A revision of the original book, this abbreviated (but totally authentic) text of 3 major comedies and scenes from 4 others is a crowd pleaser. The information on performance gives students many chances to expand on the stories and perform them. An excellent book for the intermediate level.
The Story of the Prophet Daniel Here are 2 text versions with notes of the Medieval Play of Daniel: Beauvais, which is available on CDs, and Hilarius. There is a wealth of ancillary material, too: scholarly articles on various elements in the plays, a discussion of characters and drama in the Middle Ages, and parts of the Apocrypha in English. A fascinating book and great for multi-media presentations.(0)
