Don’t worry about compiling the flashcards for the Aeneid. We hunted down and found some sets of flashcards to add to our group so that you can study them. Start looking them over each day to help you prepare for your upcoming exam on May 9th!
Also there are key vocabulary words for Caesar’s De Bello Gallico – don’t neglect those either as you will surely need to be able to translate passages from Caesar’s text as well.
We are about to complete Caesar’s Gallic Wars and will do so next class (CH 22-23, or Book VI.14-18). Have your translations ready. We are going to be leaving the world of Caesar and entering the epic world of Vergil’s Aenead.
Make sure you are regularly reviewing the vocabulary from De Bello Gallico. We are now going to look at poetry, as opposed to prose, and will need to examine the nature of poetry as a literary device.
For tonight, make sure you complete your translation of Chapter 9 from Caesar’s Gallic Wars (IV.34-36.1) found in your workbook. It is due by next class, 2/27.
I know, it is a lot of work – but we have to make up for lost time.
Make sure you complete the short analysis questions for both Chapter 8 (p. 72) and Chapter 9 (p. 79) from your Caesar workbook. Oscula!!!
