Summer 2023, June 5th through August 30th.


(Any changes in the schedule will be listed here.)

 

This summer there are two offerings on the burner. Both will be offered at 10:15, and will use the same zoom address.

 

Contact me for the zoom invitation--it can be shared with anyone.

 

On  Mondays,we be looking at a series of

 

Latin proverbs

 

and translate them as well as take a peek into their structure.

 

You don’t have to know any Latin, but hopefully we’ll all learn some along the way.

 

       

June 5:

We discussed the method we'll be using is our discussion.

 

 

 

June 12:

Today we discussed the use (or assumption) of the

 

               copula--we will review it next week.  We perused the following list, and will continue with it next time.

 

 Sententiae with copula and English.doc

 

Esto commands.doc

 

 

June 19:

:  

Today we will look at gerunds and passive periphrastics (the name is harder than the concept!) using these aphorisms:

 gerunds, periphrastics from P. Syrus.doc

 

 

On Wednesdays, 

 

we be talking about the life of the ever popular leader, lover, high priest, conqueror, revolutionary, (not salad-making) autocrat:

 

Gaius Julius Caesar.

 

We’ll look especially at what ancient authors had to say,

 

with particular emphasis on those writers who actually knew of him first hand—including Caesar himself.

 

Most of the materials that we see in the sessions will be posted here.

 

 

     Plutarch's Life of Gaius Julius Caesar https://penelope.uchicago.edu/Thayer/E/Roman/Texts/Plutarch/Lives/Caesar*.html

 

     Suetonius's Life of Julius Caesar http://penelope.uchicago.edu/Thayer/E/Roman/Texts/Suetonius/12Caesars/Julius*.html

 

 

     June 7th--intro to the era of CJC and discussion of the political structure of the time. The following are helpful precis of

               

               that. The politics section (taken from Wikipedia) should be clickable for more info.

 

     CJC Quick Roman history.doc

     CJC Politics of ancient Rome-wikipedia.doc

 

     Reading Plutarch will give you on overview of CJC's life-altho only one view. We will discuss some of it next time.

 

 


     June 21st Zoom problems. I apologize!!!

          Here are some short bios or discussions of Caesar from the ancient world. You could read them ahead of next time. I have also attached a speech that

 

Caesar gave in defense of Catiline. It gives some insight into Caesar's personality--or at least how Sallust perceived it.

 

                    CJC in Velleius Paterculus.doc CJC in Pliny the Elder.doc CJC's speech in Salliust.doc

 

 

  July 19th CJC's Commentaries on the Civil War (which he started!?!)

August 10:

We will continue the discussion of art, esp. looking the painters mentioned--although we have very little of what we can call paintings left.

 

We will also look at the BEE section,  a very extensive discussion, although wherther about bees or about Pliny's acquaintances is not clear.PtE Bees, Book 11.doc

 

p.s. Beth was on the money that the Laocoon is not mentioned in book 34. It is in book 36. I am sorry for the mix-up and thank her for her careful reading.

 

August 3rd: We will look at two of the art/mineral chapters: Here are some selections to look at

although I realize I've given almost all of Chapter 35

 

PtE Book 34 selected.doc ,(3-93)

PtE 35 selections.doc (almost whole book)

 

 

 

July 27: sea creatures(see readings suggested in last week's post)

 

July 20: We just finished the animals, and started to look at the table of contents of Book 9 for sea creatures

 

These are the readings on marine life that I like to concentrate on (but  of course you are welcome to read the whole book):

 

     1-4: amazing sea creatures

     5-11 whales and dolphins

     54-59-pearls

     60-65-royal dyes from shell fish

     83-88-remarkable foreign fish

 

 

July 13: NO session today--I'll be at a (virtual) Classics conference

You might look at Book 9 for the 20th, esp/

     Secs 1-4 treat amazing sea creatures

     5-11 whales and dolphins

     54-59-pearls

     60-65-royal dyes from shell fish

     83-88-remarkable foreign fish

 

July 6: Book 8:

 

Below you will find Book 8, plus excerpts that highlight the big animals and some of the stories

 

surrounding them. We will be focussing on them--and if you find any individual story of

 

particular interest, please let us know why--and maybe think about reading it for us in the

 

sesssion?

June 22: cancelled due to conflict with OLLI general meeting

 

 

June 15:         We will look at the geography books, 3-6.  If you would like to see for yourself Pliny's approach as well as what he deems worthy of note:

 

     A. You could read some of the excerpts of book 5 and 6 here:PtE bk 5 excerpts.doc  PtE NH 6. excerpts.doc.

They give you some idea of the breadth, and limitations, of Pliny's presentation.

 

     B. You could pick one book (I'd suggest Book 3 as the most familiar) and read it through.  Links to all the books are available above.
