Aeneid Book Two Scansion Help?

Postby orthodoxy1095 » Fri May 21, 2010 12:35 am

I have scanned these lines myself, but I would like someone that knows what they're doing to tell me how to correctly scan this. The lines are 595-596 in my book, but just to make sure, I will post the lines here:

'Nate, quis indomitas tantus dolor excitat iras?
Quid furis? aut quonam nostri tibi cura recessit?


Thanks in advance. Need an answer as quickly as possible, because this is tomorrow's homework, and I really need one last good homework grade to finish off the year.

Can you post your own shot at the scansion? Then we can guide you more productively.
Horae quidem cedunt et dies et menses et anni, nec praeteritum tempus umquam revertitur nec quid sequatur sciri potest. Quod cuique temporis ad vivendum datur, eo debet esse contentus. --Cicero, De Senectute

Of course, I forgot to. Silly me, I just read the forum rules :roll:

Salve rectafides1095

Nāte, qui|s indomi|tās tan|tus dolo|r excita|t īrās?
Quid furi|s? aut quō|nam nos|trī tibi |cūra re|cessit?
I'm writing in Latin hoping for correction, and not because I'm confident in how I express myself. Latinè scribo ut ab omnibus corrigar, non quod confidenter me exprimam.
