Prosody made easy [microform] : Wherein, the rules are more brief, comprehensive, and perspicuous, than any hitherto published; and are so plain and succinct, that a child learning the declensions, moods and tenses, may at the same time be taught the quantities of the syllables, and read with propriety from the very beginning. The method of scanning Horace's Odes and epodes is laid down in so plain and regular a manner, as to enable a learner of the meanest capacity to scan, and consequently to read them properly, without embarrassment or loss of time. : To the rules is subjoined a brief account of the different sorts of verse used by the Latin poets, with remarks on some of their beauties and faults, for the assistance of young gentlemen in their own compositions, as well as to enable them to read the classics with the greatest taste and improvement. / By the Rev. William Nixon, A.B. formerly principal of the Dublin Academy. ; [Two lines from Cicero].
