Choose the Next Circuit: Ancient Classics Survey

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” (, “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.

    Oooo. You know, I don’t remember ever fully reading ANY Roman or Greek classic! I must have skimmed at least a few (and of course I’m familiar with the major ones), but I’ve never read a whole one. This tour is going to be awesome!

    Yippee! Since I plan to start reading the ancients Greeks tin January anyway, this is a perfect fit!

    I’ve just found my way here and am very excited! Ancient Greek sounds just thing…especially as I was mentioned wanting to read the Odyssey that’s been lying on my shelf for a few years!:D
