Epode 4

Just like the fate that binds together wolves and sheep, such is the difference between you and me-- you, with your sides burned by Spanish ropes and your shins by hard shackles. Although you can swagger about with your arrogant wealth, Fortune has not changed who you really are.



Don’t you see as you strut along the Via Sacra in your outrageous toga that passersby turn their eyes away in absolute disgust? “Cut by the lashes of the triumvir capitals until the herald was disgusted, now… Continue

A Traveling Exhibit: APA Comics Contest 2008

Dear Friends on eClassics:



I''m writing to inform you, if you haven't been able to see the display boards that have traveled to APA Chicago, Eta Sigma Phi, and just recently, CAMWS, that the winners and honorable mention entries from the 2008 APA Comics Contest are traveling the country at the request of teachers like you.



The theme was the statue of Ceres that crowns the Chicago Board of Trade building. The cost of the display is nominal, since it entails merely the price… Continue

Horace Epode 3

If ever someone with an impious hand, has broken the aged neck of a parent, make them eat garlic-- it’s worse than hemlock! Oh, the tough guts of harvesters! What sort of poison rages in my stomach? Has the gore of a viper been boiled with these vegetables without my notice? Or has that witch Canidia handled this evil stew?



When Medea gazed upon Jason, shining brighter than all the rest of the Argonaughts, she anointed him with this stuff when he was about to bind the bulls unused to… Continue

Report on the AP Latin Literature meeting, CAMWS, April 17, 2008

Report of AP Latin from CAMWS

Thursday, April 17, 2008, 8-10 PM



One of the two evening sessions on April 17 at CAMWS focused on AP Latin, specifically the results of the two 2007 exams, how the exams were created, and how they were graded. The three panelists included Mary Pendergraft, Dawn La Fon, and Wells Hansen. At the start of the session, Pendergraft stated that there would be plenty of time at the end for questions about AP Latin Literature, which turned out to be a solid… Continue

The Shape of Things to Come...

A friend once said that the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse were McDonald's, Coca-Cola, Starbucks, and Disney. He saw the developing multi-national corporate model in each business, and the fact that they would bring about a homogenization, at the expense of the individual history and culture.

That's what I thought when I saw this about the Parthenon, sent by a student . What developer wouldn't love to get ahold of the Acropolis?

Epode 2

Here goes Epode II





“Happy is he who avoids the rat race, like the ancient race of mortals, cultivates his ancestral lands with cows, who is free from debt, who’s neither a soldier, roused by the cruel trumpet, nor dreading the wrathful sea, nor living at the Forum and the haughty thresholds of more powerful men.



“So, when the shoots of his vines mature, he weds them to tall poplars, or in a remote vale, he watches the wanderings of the bellowing flocks, and removing… Continue

Horace, Epode 1

I am currently working on a translation of Horace's Epodes. I thought it would be nice to post some here for comment. Keep in mind that these are a work in progress and any comments woudl be appreciated.



Epode 1



Friend, you are going in a Liburtine galley among the ship’s tall ramparts, prepared, Maecenas, to undergo all of Caesar’s dangers yourself.



What about us, whose life will be sweet if you survive and loathsome if you don’t?

Should I pursue leisure,… Continue

Fable of the Day (Greek): The Shepherd and The Lion

Ποιμὴν καὶ λέων

Hi, everybody! I'm back after a LONG hiatus - blame it on Bolchazy-Carducci (just kidding), because I was finishing up the ms. of a book for them on Barlow's Aesop (yeah!!!). I finally finished that last week, so I'm blogging fables here again, this time with another fable from Syntipas - check out the GreekAesop wiki for more information about Syntipas and his fables!

Latinum Podcast reaches its Millionth audio file download

Well, the unthinkable has happened, and the Latinum Podcast has just had its one millionth audio file download.

http://Latinum.mypodcast.com



This is all the more remarkable, as the Latinum podcast is not simply teaching Latin, but conversational Classical Latin.



Over time, I have responded to observations from users, and tweaked the presentation format. Users tell me that the current format is 'addictive'.



It is very simple:

Each lesson has three… Continue

Open Letter from Ronnie Ancona re: AP Latin Literature Cancellation

The following letter was written by Ronnie Ancona in response to an urgent e-mail from Judy Hallett to the APA Board and some others (like Ronnie) involved in AP. Now posted on Latinteach and Classics list:



Dear colleagues,



Thanks to Judy for calling this matter to your attention. I was truly stunned by this announcement. There seem to be three issues involved, (1) the announced change itself (2) the lack of professional consultation and (3) the lack of lead time for… Continue
