					   NCEA Level 2 – 90263 Examine
familiar literary Latin passages within
            the wider context
                   2009




    Examples of student work

Excellence




             2
                               Excellence (low)




The student examines in detail the heritage aspect of Ovid’s Lucretia as presented
in art and literature.
 The painting by Giordano is examined in detail and makes accurate reference to
the relevant lines of the poem. The Botticelli is not examined in such detail and
there are some statements that lack reference to the poem e.g. “lying with a knife
in her chest”. References to the poem are accurate and frequent in the
examination of Titian’s painting. An interesting and feasible explanation is put
forward to explain the presence of the slave in the painting. The comparison with
Livy’s version is accurate but brief.
Overall the student has reached Excellence. Several conclusions, some debatable,
have been reached.




                                                                               3

Merit

                     Merit (high)

The student has chosen to examine the heritage aspect of Ovid’s
Lucretia as presented in art and literature.
The examination of the portrayal of Lucretia in Britten’s opera,
although containing some inaccurate comparisons e.g.Lucretia
going to the camp and confusion as to Brutus’ identity, is
examined in detail with good reference to Ovid’s passage.
The paintings by Vouet and Durer are examined in detail,
although there are inaccurate or debatable conclusions e.g. the
reference to the goblet. The work by van Leyden has many
similarities to the Durer work and the student has made similar
comments, although some of them are debatable.
Overall this is a Merit (high). To achieve at the next level the
student would be expected to ensure that comments were accurate
and come to accurate conclusions or describe the wider context in
more detail.




                                                                    13

                       Merit (low)



Currently there is no work available to exemplify a low Merit. To
gain a low Merit, in addition to the Achieved example below the
student would be expected to examine the character of Aeneas
with reference to at least two more of the Roman social ideals and
to provide more examples or write in more depth about how he
fulfils most of these ideals.




                                                                     23
Achieved




           24
                   Achieved (high)



The student examines the character of Aeneas with reference to
Roman social ideals, pietas,virtus and constantia and to
the Romantic point of view. Reference is made to Books 2 and 4 of
the Aeneid and a conclusion is reached.
There are generalisations or limited interpretation of the text e.g. the
sections on pietas “disregard for Dido’s feelings” and virtus, but most
statements are supported by evidence from the texts and the section
on constantia is sound.




                                                                           25

                  Achieved (low)


The student examines the wider context of the poem by
describing the paintings, overall at Achieved level. The third
unnamed painting is very sketchily dealt with. The examination
of Shakespeare’s poem is accurate as far as it goes, but much
more of it should have been commented on. Although the
relationship of the passages to the wider context has been shown
there are some inaccuracies and misunderstandings e.g. Lucretia
did not go to the camp; of necessity there is light in the paintings.
Using more material from Shakespeare and commenting more
fully on all of the paintings would be necessary for the student to
gain a higher grade.
