Living with a Dead Language

By Alexander Stille

This article on Father Reginal Foster by Alexander Stille appears as chapter eight in Stille's recent book, The Future of the Past (2002), entitled "Living with a Dead Language".

It is about 40 pages long, and full of vivid images of Father Foster teaching. A. Stille was one of his students and originally published this in The American Scholar in Autumn 1994, entitled "Latin Fanatic: Profile Of Father Reginald Foster". It does not seem to be available on the web. So I made one copy of these copyright images for personal study. If you enjoy it, you can purchase the book.
