Pīsō Ille Poētulus: Published

Pīsō Ille Poētulus, my Latin poetry novella, is available now! You can get it on iTunes or Amazon, but it’s better to download from Band Camp! Alternatively, I can mail it to you on a USB Drive.

Before you go further, I highly encourage you to consider using the crucial, novel accompaniment for this latest of Latin novellas written for the novice with sheltered (i.e. limited) vocabulary. No, it’s not the rather comprehensive glossary, but an audio album of Piso’s 22 lines of original, new dactylic hexameter. Sure, there are generic poetry audio files here, but the audio album features all of Piso’s poetry accompanied by percussion instruments to emphasize the particular rhythm of each specific line of poetry. This resource is not only designed to listen to with your students, but also for you to hone your own metrical skills! Each track on the audio album includes…

a) Piso singing his line of poetry
b) an English translation to [re]establish meaning
c) the line of poetry repeated to check comprehension
d) a slow version of just the rhythm to become more comfortable singing to a beat
e) the normal speed of just the rhythm to practice singing at Piso’s speed
f) the line of poetry repeated one last time

The audio album includes two tracks of the entire Dē Versibus appendix; one with Piso singing, and one slowed down with just rhythms. Here’s a sample of the audio album. Without further ado, Pīsō Ille Poētulus

1) Classroom Set Specials (up to $180 off!)
