• A Greek Boy at Home (2/2) •
• W.H.D. Rouse •
Duration: 3 h 33 m
Price : $50
W.H.D. Rouse's work "A Greek Boy at Home" is one of the best text collections for use by the student of the Ancient Greek language. They are texts of his own invention, quite a feat, succesfully imitating a spoken style, balanced and relatively easy to pronounce.
• The audiobook is released in two parts. The reason of this division is to avoid overwhelming the student with the longer texts from the very beginning, although the last text of part-01, comprised by chapters 16 to 17 in one whole, is rather lengthy. This should be a taster for what awaits in the second part.
• The second part contains many longer texts and a few short ones, making it an ideal exercise for comprehension and retention. Many of the texts are hinting to known Greek works, like Aesop's myths and "Daphnis and Chloe", though entirely composed by W.H.D. Rouse.
• The text (pdf) can be found at Archive.org and is freely available.
• Together with the vocabulary at google books
