Discover one of the world’s great novels while you learn Latin.

Atticus Finch defends a black man charged with the rape of a white girl, while we see the world of the American South in the 1930s through the innocent eyes of Scout and Jem Finch. In understanding the racial injus-tice of her town, Scout gains a new awareness of kindness and cruelty and leaves her child-hood behind.

Andrew Wilson’s translation is suitable for students of any ability, and this is the perfect resource for anyone studying, or teaching, Latin. His use of Latin vocabulary reflects the subtlety of Harper Lee’s writing while providing an exciting new way to learn the language.
