CLST 271: Classical Mythology

Fall Semester 2002
Dr. Jacqueline Long

Study Guide for Exam II


The exam will have three parts; there will be some measure of choice within each part:

Things to study

Terms and items you might be asked to identify include:
Note: this is a literature class, not a memorization bee. It is convenient to be able to identify major figures swiftly, by name, but it is far, far more important to be able to recognize, understand, and EXPLAIN CLEARLY how details of the stories, the actions of the characters in them, and characteristic imagery associated with those characters, reflect ideas.
Strategy: think of specific passages that illustrate important points, so that on the test you can back up your arguments with concrete evidence. Be sure you explain clearly how the passage helps demonstrate your point.
    • What does it say?
    • What does that mean?
    • Why does it mean that?

Themes and overarching considerations to consider (both for passages and for the essay; see also daily Study Questions from before and after the mid-term break):
