Helps for the Teaching of Caesar: The Literary Interpretation of Caesar


by Gonzalez Lodge - 1902

In Chapter III of his work on the Teaching of Latin, Professor Bennett sums up the objections to the use of Caesar as a reading book in the secondary school under the following heads: first, Caesar is undeniably difficult; second, Caesar is not interesting; third, the bearing of Caesar's narrative is not obvious. With regard to the first objection I have nothing to urge. There seems to be a divergence of opinion, as is to be expected among teachers, as to whether Caesar is very difficult or not. I imagine that the difficulty will vary to a certain extent according to the qualifications of the students and the efficiency of the teacher, but in the main it will be admitted that the passages in indirect discourse are not simple.
