The result of the poll is the Ancient Greeks! Our late January Classics Circuit will focus on welcoming the Ancient Greeks to the blogosphere.
Sign up for the Ancient Greek Circuit will be in the middle of December. Check back in a few weeks to sign up. And don’t forget to follow the Trollope tour, starting December 6!
Although I haven’t yet determined the exact dates, January’s Classics Circuit will run at the end of January. It’s time for the Classics Circuit to hearken back to the first definition of “Classic,” those works of classical antiquity.
“classic: A literary work of Ancient Greece or Rome” (Merriam-Webster.com, “classic” definition 1)
Our January tour will focus either on the Greek Classics or the Roman Classics.
It’s All Greek to Me: The Ancient Greeks wrote epic poetry, plays, and histories, including Homer, Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, Aristophanes, Herodotus, and Sappho.
Roman Holiday: From Virgil to Horace, Ovid, Seneca, and Apuleius, the Romans’ poetry, epigrams, essays, and plays have an integral spot in the Western canon.
Which would you like to see featured on the Circuit?
SURVERY is closed. The next tour will feature the ANCIENT GREEKS.
Our Anthony Trollope tour will run from Monday, December 6 to Friday, December 17.
Our button comes from the frontspiece of the first publication of The Last Chronicle of Barset (published 1867).
Here are the blogs Mr. Trollope will be visiting each day.
