Student Mythology

The vocabulary workbooks for the juniors have finally arrived. In a new edition, blast them. I think ma soeur des livres said she has a teacher's edition for me, though.

No mythology books for the freshmen yet. They are actually enjoying the video series on the Seven Wonders of the ancient world, which is a good thing.

From the seniors, these little gems about Aeneid, book VI:

Aeneas meets someone he knows in the Fields of Mourning. Who is it and why is he or she there?

He meets Dido. He thought she was alive but she was killed by babages.

How many circles are in the underworld [Styx]?

There are 9 circles in sticks

Who helped Aeneas find his father [Anchises] in Elysium?

Musaeus shows Aeneas where to find anchovies.
