  1. February 8, 2019Freshman Lit SeminarMr. Cabat Aim: “I want to speak about bodies changed into new forms” The Metamorphosis by Ovid

  2. DO NOW Quick Review How many different comparisons can we draw between the beginning of Ovid’s Metamorphosis and other stories that we’ve read as a class? Take a few minutes to write about it in your journal doc. (Hint: Think of Gilgamesh and the Old Testament)

  3. ***SCHEDULE NOTES*** • 2/11 – Ovid – “Pyramus and Thisbe” • 2/12 and 2/13 – Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations • 2/14 – Intro to the Inquiry-Based Project

  4. Ovid • Publius Ovidius Naso (43 B.C. - A.D. 15) • Influenced Chaucer, Shakespeare, Dante, and Milton. • To really understand Greco-Roman mythology requires knowledge of Ovid's Metamorphoses. • Metamorphoses • Written in 8 A.D. • It tells stories about the transformations of mostly humans and nymphs into animals, plants, etc. • This is very different from the contemporary Roman poet Virgil, who used his writing to showcase the noble history of Rome.

  5. Metamorphosis Let’s define the word: Metamorphosis (Noun): 1. A transformation, as by magic or sorcery. 2. A marked change in appearance, character, condition, or function. There is a reason Ovid called this piece Metamorphoses.

  6. Apollo & Daphne

  7. Apollo & Daphne Summarize the story of Apollo & Daphne Using textual evidence, tell us how both Daphne and Apollo are characterized

  8. Apollo & Daphne How does this story fit in with the concept of metamorphosis? Can love transcend transformation? What happens when the person you fall in love with changes? Remember, not all changes are physical.

  9. Homework For Monday, please read the “Pyramus and Thisbe” excerpt from the Ovid packet and address the EQ on the turnitin discussion board.
