Do HW in the listed order!

1) Read sections 28-32 in the Introduction to Pro Caelio titled Life of Caelius and the Pro Caelio.  I have not made questions so take detailed notes and know this crucial background information.  Also read the Chronological table of Caelius' life (handout on Monday last week). 

2) Read/prepare/write translation for Pro Caelio, 1.1 or lines 1 to 18.  This will not be easy but use your commentary to get through it. Remember that Cicero is defending Caelius against charges under the lex de vi which allows such a trial to be held on a public holiday/festival because the state has been threatened or treated with violence by the accused.  This law goes back to the period of the Gracchi.     I will begin assigning grades for in class reading on Monday.   Volunteers are always welcome. 

3) Old:  We will finish discussing questions 37 to 49 on Monday.  Read Introduction: Life and Times of Cicero (sections 1 through 19, pages xiv-xxiii) and write out answers to questions 1 to 49.  This background information is crucial.  Expect this material on quiz/test.   

4) Review the five independent subjunctives and know their unique syntax and how to express each in English.  Let us have a quiz on these soon.   Would that we had studied these subjunctives!  What are we to do now?   No one could say that Mr. Ross is not evil.
