HW/Agenda for Tuesday, March 21, 2017: 

Here is a list for the next vocabulary quiz in one week. 

Here is the prompt for the essay on Vergil's First Eclogue. 

1)  Read/translate lines 60-82 of Vergil's First Eclogue.  

2) Complete the 2016 CAV test and self-correct when finished.    Sign pledge and hand-in with your mistakes corrected with different pen.   The reading passages are attached toward the end of the test.  Remove and use to answer questions for the reading passages.  You may also do 2015, if you have the time and lust for greatness. 

3) Tit. and Mel. in their Pastoral World, Having to be Visualized by You. 

Reread Eclogue One and, as you read, depict visually by means of drawing and/or colouring the descriptive elements of this poem based as closely as possible on the Latin text.  Label each element of the picture with the Latin dictionary entry and/or Latin phrases where appropriate of each thing depicted.  Make lines 46-58 the core of picture but also include other descriptive elements of the poem. This is first an exercise in reading the Latin text closely and secondly an exercise in creativity.   So be creative, damn it!   Try to include as many images, elements and words as you can.  I do realize that the gods have not distributed artistic talent equally (Grace didn’t get much) but do your best to imagine Tityrus‘ pastoral world and depict it accurately with an expressive and expansive genius.   It is crucial that you show visually a detailed understanding of the text and label each element with Latin words and phrases.  I will also give extra credit (real, not the kind given to Virginia) for extreme effort, superior labeling, artistic brilliance and pastoral or bovine audacity.        Value 100 Points.     Due Tuesday. 

Email with questions.
