"The Routledge Dictionary of Latin Quotations" completes our enormously successful and award-winning Latin for the Illiterati series of volumes, rounding off the trilogy with a comprehensive treasury of classic Latin quotations, mottoes, proverbs, and maxims collected from the worlds of philosophy, rhetoric, politics, science, religion, literature, drama, poetics, and war.
Distinguished by the combination of user-friendliness and comprehensiveness, this book will provide students, scholars, and general readers with an eminently browsable resource that is as useful as it is enjoyable.

"As the first general collection of Latin quotations published in ten years, this book offers wisdom and humor from classical, medieval, and renaissance periods. Its scope is wide (nearly 8000 quotations are listed)....Overall, this is a delightful and instructive collection. Its selected English-Latin index makes the book useful for beginners or those whose Latin is rusty." -Library Journal
