So what does one do when one is dreading an impending Latin Exam of DOOM? Naturally, one takes out a favourite chiddler's book, Roald Dahl's The BFG
, and starts reading about bonecrunching giants eating human beans. And, of course, one can't help but think that Dahl was at least partially influenced by Odysseus and Polyphemus. I almost want to write a paper about it! Almost.
Then again, I also always think of Richard III
whenever I watch The Lion King
now--so perhaps I'm just insane.
Anyway, I also wanted to plug old school
, which is run by a couple undergrads at UMBC and is about ancient history, classics, and archaeology. Classics blogs abounding!
