Discussion Prompts

  1. AP Credit: Compare/contrast Euryalus and Telemakhos.
  2. What do you think the nature of the relationship between Nisus and Euryalus is? Why?
  3. Why do you think Juno chooses Iris as her messenger in this book?
  4. AP Credit: Compare/contrast Turnus and Achilles.
  5. What role does hubris play in this book? What does that tell us about fate versus free will?

I have a BA in History and Classical Civilization from Loyola University Chicago and an MPH from Western Michigan University. I've been a geometry teacher, a religion teacher, a writing tutor. I'm a writer, a knitter, a dancer, a singer, an actor. And, yes, for fun I like to reread everything that was assigned while getting my classics degree.
