World Lit/comp update - week 18

Today we finished watching "O Brother Where Art Thou" and then began our unit on the Aeneid. We discussed the details behind Virgil's Aeneid - that it was modeled after Homer's Iliad and Odyssey - and that there was a clear political agenda to the story.  We also fully fleshed out the details of the entire story.  Then we watched a fabulous stick figure movie about the events in the Aeneid.

1. Read the next play about Aeneas and Dido and be ready to answer questions about it at the beginning of class next week.
2. Keep working on your study guide - the unit test will be on February 27th
3. The OMG project is due on March 6 - and on that day we will move on to Norse mythology.
