I suppose I'll have to work on a big August/September listing soon too.
In Glaukopis-related news, a date has been set for my Latin Exam of Doom (in which Vergil finally kicks my butt once and for all)--the 21st of this month. The GRE will be sometime after that, but I refuse to think about it until after Latin
Immediately thence, Greek reviewing will commence, and soon after, I'll be starting a Classical Greece history course. I thought studying Latin (in Ecce Romani II) and reading all the Grene and Lattimore translations of Greek tragedies last summer was already Classicsful. Apparently, I had to out-do myself this summer!
Oh, I've also started listening to the Iliad on CD (unabridged, trans. Fitzgerald, narr. George Guidall) last night. Admittedly, it's in preparation for class, but we're supposed to be reading the Lattimore translation. I just figured I've read the Iliad before, and it would be nice to hear it, even if it's not in Greek. I'll probably flip through Lattimore later, though.
