We just finished Daedalus and Icarus in the Latin course and have a week and a half before the exam: not quite enough time to read something new (other than an unrelated, shorter poem) but too much time to do straight review.

The exam will include both Daedalus and Icarus and Apollo and Daphne, the latter of which was read at the beginning of the semester.
