One of the many memorable couplets in C. 4.7 is 19-20: cuncta manus avidas fugient heredis, amico quae dederis animo. Has anyone noted the odd change of meaning when we come to the last word? Up until then, it looks … Continue reading
In 2000, I gave a lecture on Tacitus, titled as above, at the University of Durham. It was well-received, and a previous version of the main argument has even been mentioned in a footnote (A. J. Woodman, Tacitus Reviewed, 237 … Continue reading
I’ve been rereading Book IV of Horace’s Odes for the first time in years, and memorizing as much as I can on walks and long drives. When I finish 4.11 tomorrow, I will have 1-3, 7, and 10-13 down, which … Continue reading
Back to finishing up some long-unfinished papers in my files, I’ve just uploaded a page on two passages of the Theognidea (PDF here).
I have now posted a note or short paper every day of August, two on the 7th, for a total of thirty-two. I will be doing fewer, but longer, ones in September. This last contains a conjecture on one of … Continue reading
Here is the third and last of the Pindarica that have been lying half-finished in my files for many years. The PDF is here.
Here’s another Pindaricum: there will be one more tomorrow on his most twisted poem, and the I will be all Pindared out for the foreseeable future. The PDF is here.
Here’s a note on the first three words of Horace’s Iambi (Epodes), or rather on two of the three. The PDF is here.
Even with eight hours on the road, and the first day of school tomorrow, I still managed to put together a note on one of Horace’s Iambi or (if you like) Epodes. Then again, three of those hours of driving … Continue reading
Tonight’s note is half-textual, half-exegetical, on Martial. The PDF is here.
Here’s a tiny note on a minor point in the text of Horace’s Roman Odes. (I’m away from home where most of my books are, which is complicating my August web-publish-a-textual-or-exegetical-note-every-day plan.) The PDF is here.
Here’s a conjecture on Martial that has been in my on-line text for ten years. It’s about time I gave the argument for it. There is a sordid confession in footnote 2. The PDF is here.
I don’t have much time to write tonight – syllabuses and first-week homework assignments are due right about now – but I don’t want to miss a day, so it’s back to Martial for another tiny bit of Orthographica. The … Continue reading
Back to Pliny, with a tiny bit of Orthographica. The PDF is here.
Back to Martial, with an interesting theoretical question, stated in the title. The PDF is here.
Here is my first paper on Lucilius – the Roman satirist, not the double-elled Greek epigrammatist or the poetical friend of the Younger Seneca. No translation of the Latin is provided, since it’s rather obscene, especially after I’m done with … Continue reading
Here’s a paper on a Greek topic, for a change, my first Pindaricum. The PDF is here.
Turning back to Martial, here is a textual-exegetical note on one of Martial’s best epigrams. The PDF is here.
Turning back to Juvenal 9, here are two conjectures on a single line, one more plausible than the other. The PDF is here.
Turning to the other satire in Book III of Juvenal, here’s a note on Juvenal 8, yet another novelty for the 2nd edition of my web-text of Juvenal. The PDF is here.
