  3. I don't have your book, so I don't. But find the place where Tiresias first shows up and keep on reading.

  7. oh sorry, never mind. I forgot you said that there's different books. It's just that our class has only read up to a certain point and I don't want to ask a question about something that we haven't read yet. I probably should have mentioned this before :P
