- Roland G. Kent (ed.and trans.), Varro On The Latin Language, (2 vols) pdf. Parallel Latin and English text. Varro had also written a tract called ‘De sermone latino’ and (as we saw earlier, here) Isidore seems to have identified, and been identified by Braulio with Varro.
Kent describe’s Varro’s ‘de sermone Latino’ as: ” in five books or more, addressed to Marcellus, which treats of orthography and the metres of poetry”. (p.ix) but I find no record of its ever being translated into English.
NOT recommended: the wiki article ‘Roman academies’ – section on the Renaissance period is remarkably ill-informed.
correction – detail in the portraits (of Valla etc.) corrected; new image uploaded (Sept.15th., 2017)
