Chapter 5: Composition: Create Your Own Aeneid
  • You have been assigned one of three text-and-image paths composed by Prof. Mark Morford, Univ. of Virginia, on aspects of Vergil's Aeneid we have read this semester:
  • Follow the paths, noting both the main story and the possible vocabulary you might use in creating a brief epic.
  • Craft a portion of Vergil's epic story, using vocabulary we have learned (for additional vocabulary, use the English-Latin dictionary in the back of your book). Your epic should include the following:
    • active and passive verbal forms
    • indicative and subjunctive moods
    • all four types of participles (pres. act., pf. pass., fut. act. and fut. pass.); the fut. pass. must be used in a passive periphrastic
    • both the ablative and dative of agency
    • possum + an infinitive
    • substantial vocabulary from chapter 5
  • Have one person post the story to the chatroom on behalf of the group, and then use the chatroom as a way to edit and correct your group's story.
  • Your story must be completed by Sunday at 3pm.
