Homework due February 11

Salvete, omnes discipuli discipulaeque! / γειά σου!

Elementary Latin

  1. Quiz on: Perfect tense—pluperfect tense—future perfect tense (ch. 12)
  2. Also on the quiz: vocabulary pp. 78-79.
  3. Sentences (Sententiae Antiquae), 4, 5, 10).
  4. Perfect Active System of Verbs.

Classics and Film

  1. Finish watching The Warriors.
  2. On Greek history: A chronological overview (PDF file).
  3. Read Books 21-24 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 Friday/next week (???).
  4. See this online study guide on the Odyssey. Make a list of at least 5 main characters and note their equivalent in O Brother Where Art Thou, and how the characters as portrayed in the film differ from those in the epic poem.
  1. 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. Quiz on the personal pronouns: words for I, you, we, you (pl.) — go here for a chart with the modern and ancient Greek pronouns.
  2. Chapter 14: p. 86, 1, 2.

Intermediate Latin

  1. Selections from Ovid’s Metamorphoses on Daedalus and Icarus.
  2. Ancient constellation maps.
