Piso is a Roman boy who wants to be a great poet like Virgil. His family, however, wants him to be a soldier like his father. Can Piso convince his family that poetry is a worthwhile profession?

Piso Ille Poetulus contains just 108 unique words (excluding names, different forms of words, and meaning established within the text), and features 22 original lines of dactylic hexameter.

Whether used as an introduction to Latin poetry, a survey of ancient Rome’s famous buildings, or a glimpse into the day of a Roman boy, Piso Ille Poetulus is a must-have in every Latin classroom.
