The first essay question is from part 18:
In defending Archias, Cicero also extolled the study of liberal arts. In a well-written essay, show how in this section Cicero builds his argument from the specific to the general in his defense of poetry and literature. What rhetorical devices do you think helped his presentation. Why do you think he ended this section in his way?
The second essay question is from parts 10 and 25:
In sections 10 and 25, Cicero describes the granting of citizenship to recipients seemingly "less worthy" than Archias. Contrast these situations with that of Archias. Why does he seem "more worthy" of citizenship than the others? What tone is prevalent in both examples and why?
Soooooo have fun with these!...I guess.
