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.
