Need help with a selection from Ch. 36

Postby Dacicus » Thu Jun 03, 2004 1:54 am

I'm stuck on the second sentence of "I Love Her ... I Love Her Not," which reads:
Quare id faciam fortasse requiris.
I can translate each word separately, but I cannot put them together into a meaningful sentence. Is there some implied word that I should supply to make sense out of it?

Thank you very much for any help.

Quare id faciam fortasse requiris.

Quare id faciam is functioning as an indirect question referred to by fortasse requiris. Make sure to understand that requiris means "ask" and not "seek" in this sentence. There are no implied words.

I hope you can figure it out from there, but if not I'm happy to help you more.
