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 injustice of her town, Scout gains a new awareness of kindness and cruelty and leaves her childhood behind. Andrew Wilson’s translation is suitable for students of any ability, and he has developed 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, as well as an opportunity to experience a classic American novel in a new way.
