Ablative of Procrastination
Hello fellow classics enthusiasts! From now on no one has to worry which of us is the least educated in the classics.....that would be me! I'm not illiterate; I'm just not well versed in the ancient texts. I've read the basic works of Aristotle and Plato, which inspired me to sample the classics at Yale. I plan on taking DS and taking lower level Greek. Although I have not taken either Latin or Greek, I am confident in my language/memorization skills and I don't think it will be too difficult to have a modicum of Greek under my belt after the first year. I won't major in the classics, I'm a math-english guy, but I have a great reverance for the masters of thought. |
I'm reading Kagan's History of the Pelopenessian War. I admire Pericles and used his funeral oration as a practice speech before giving my commencement for graduation. As Alex tells me, Donald Kagan is amazingly attractive! *cough cough* But that doesn't matter, he's amazing! Hope everyone is having an erudite summer.
