Monday, May 2

Latin Prose

You need to carefully read the the second ghost story (sections 4-11 in your handout), and, just as you did over the weekend for sections 1-3, write 10 reading comprehension questions in LATIN for it. Using the words I supplied on Friday, make sure you have at least 5 different types of questions.

Latin 3

Please write out the Latin (print is preferred but neat script is allowed) of page 23 and underline all the verbs and verbals:

Priori Remo augurium venisse fertur, sex vultures; iamque nuntiato augurio cum duplex numerus Romulo se ostendisset, utrumque regem sua multitudo consalutaverat: tempore illi praecepto, at hi numero avium regnum trahebant. Inde cum altercatione congressi certamine irarum ad caedem vertuntur; ibi in turba ictus Remus cecidit. Vulgatior fama est ludibrio fratris Remum novos transiluisse muros; inde ab irato Romulo, cum verbis quoque increpitans adiecisset, “Sic deinde, quicumque alius transiliet moenia mea,” interfectum. Ita solus potitus imperio Romulus; condita urbs conditoris nomine appellata.

You will have a quiz on this after we go over the translation.

Take 15-20 minutes to answer the following.

Pliny the younger ends his first letter to Tacitus saying it’s up to him pick out the best stuff from his letter and follows it with the maxim: aliud est enim epistulam, aliud historiam, aliud amico, aliud omnibus scribere. What rhetorical device(s) does he use here?  How does he define his and Tacitus’ roles as writers? To whom do they write? How does it compare to the end of his second letter to Tacitus? Haec, nequaquam historia digna, non scripturus leges et tibi scilicet qui requisisti imputabis, si digna ne epistula quidem videbuntur. Translate both sentences and answer the questions.

Tuesday, April 26

Latin Prose

For homework extra credit tonight you can choose to translate the remainder of letter VI.16.16-21:

Sub dio rursus quamquam levium exesorumque pumicum casus metuebatur, quod tamen periculorum collatio elegit; et apud illum quidem ratio rationem, apud alios timorem timor vicit. Cervicalia capitibus imposita linteis constringunt; id munimentum adversus incidentia fuit. [17] Iam dies alibi, illic nox omnibus noctibus nigrior densiorque; quam tamen faces multae variaque lumina solvebant. Placuit egredi in litus, et ex proximo adspicere, ecquid iam mare admitteret; quod adhuc vastum et adversum permanebat. [18] Ibi super abiectum linteum recubans semel atque iterum frigidam aquam poposcit hausitque. Deinde flammae flammarumque praenuntius odor sulpuris alios in fugam vertunt, excitant illum. [19] Innitens servolis duobus assurrexit et statim concidit, ut ego colligo, crassiore caligine spiritu obstructo, clausoque stomacho qui illi natura invalidus et angustus et frequenter aestuans erat. [20] Ubi dies redditus (is ab eo quem novissime viderat tertius), corpus inventum integrum illaesum opertumque ut fuerat indutus: habitus corporis quiescenti quam defuncto similior.

[21] Interim Miseni ego et mater – sed nihil ad historiam, nec tu aliud quam de exitu eius scire voluisti. Finem ergo faciam. [22] Unum adiciam, omnia me quibus interfueram quaeque statim, cum maxime vera memorantur, audieram, persecutum. Tu potissima excerpes; aliud est enim epistulam aliud historiam, aliud amico aliud omnibus scribere. Vale.
