A Lesson on the Poet Martial

In this post you will find a wonderful lesson to complement any study on Latin poetry. While working on some poetry lessons I stumbled across this gem, an audio/video lesson on Martial at WorldNews website. The poet Marcus Valerius Martialis, known to us as Martial, published poetry during the reigns of Domitian, Nerva, and Trajan. He is known for his charming and witty epigrams, a fun read for students. I wish I could give proper credit to the author of this segment, but I could not find that information. This seven minute lesson will introduce viewers to the life of Martial, the political times in which he lived, and some of his celebrated work. Wonderful!
