Required Accompanying Literature and Texts
THE AENEID, by Virgil (Fitzgerald translation)
MACBETH, by William Shakespeare
PARALLEL LIVES OF THE NOBLE GRECIANS AND ROMANS, by Plutarch (Volume I and Volume II – Dryden Translation). Although we will read selections from both volumes, if you wish to purchase only one, we recommend Volume II. There is also a free download of Plutarch’s Lives at Gutenberg. Still, you will not regret having both of these on your shelves; look for good used versions, or make them a library-building gift to your student!
*Note: Answers to all grammar exercises assigned in Poetics & Progym II are included in Teaching Helps. For optional additional review exercises, you may access a Key to Harvey’s Practical Grammar online here.
