focus of the exam is Suetonius and Plutarch. For each
author, choose 2 exemplary passages from the works you have
read (excluding the synkrises or comparisons of Plutarch).
In a brief essay (3-4 paragraphs) explain how each passage
illustrates the qualities, interests, purpose, and/or techniques
of its author.
passages you choose and what you discuss is up to you.
Nevertheless, in the interest of a well-rounded discussion,
you should strive to choose passages that illustrate different
things about the author. Select passages that complement,
but not replace, one another.
your reader should come away with a good sense of not only
what each author says, but how and why he says it.
