Homework due 8 February MMXI

Salvete, omnes discipuli discipulaeque! / γειά σου!

Elementary Latin

  1. Perfect tense—pluperfect tense—future perfect tense (ch. 12)
  2. Read ch. 12; write out vocabulary pp. 78-79.
  3. Sentences (Sententiae Antiquae), 1 & 3).

Classics and Film

  1. Watch The Warriors.
  2.  Some web resources
  1. Read Books 18-20 from Homer’s Odyssey and make sure you are caught up on the reading (you can read the poem online). There will be a reading quiz next Friday or next Tuesday in the next week or two—I’m sorry I did not discuss this in class on Friday.
  2. Xenophon’s Anabasis—this is the account by the Athenian general, Xenophon, that I mentioned in class. I am not assigning reading from it yet as I would like you to finish reading the Odyssey, as the plot and events in the poem have a huge influence on all of ancient Greek and Roman literature and on many of the films we will be viewing.

Elementary Greek

  1. Chapter 14: 81, sentences 5 and 6.
  2. The personal pronouns: words for I, you, we, you (pl.) — go here for a chart with the modern and ancient Greek pronouns.
  3. Here’s the PDF from class on demonstrative pronouns.

Intermediate Latin

  1. Selections from Ovid’s Metamorphoses on Daedalus and Icarus.
  2. Websites about Ovid
