Free Loeb Classics: Quintillian Composition

Recommended Posts

I found a database that hosts all the public domain Loeb Classics.


These books have many uses for us today. Obviously they are useful for teaching Greek and Latin, but the ENGLISH translations are sometimes the best available. Loeb Plutarch is known for being more easily understood that most other translations.

These books can be quoted in high school and college research papers. I always received very high marks for mixing in ancient authors alongside current newspapers and articles.

Quintillian wrote extensively about the education of boys, including the controvery of starting formal schooling at ages 6 or 7 years old, language learning, and composition. His writings were popular with classical homeschooler in the 1990's.
