Latin Stories

A cautionary note: I wrote many of the stories below before I had taken a graduate
level Latin composition course. Oh, how my understanding of the language changed! Since then, I have noticed numerous errors in some of the stories but have not had time to correct them. However, the stories targeted to grammar points, which I use frequently, have been revised.

Classics Childrens' Tales

Alice in Wonderland
Gulliver's Travels

Stories Targeted to a Grammar Point

Inscriptions: The Dative Case in Action
