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 were on Skyline Drive, which wasn’t bad at all. The PDF is here.
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 PDF is here.
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 it. The PDF is here.
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.
Still working on Book III of Juvenal, today’s paper is a conjecture on Juvenal 9, attempting to improve on one of Housman’s. This will be another novelty in the 2nd edition of my web-text of Juvenal. The PDF is here.
Today’s paper is again on Juvenal 7, with two notes on tiny details of exegesis. The PDF is here.
Today’s paper is on a Greek topic for a change (hmm: just noticed that’s a pun): ‘Making Change for a Tripod: A Footnote on Homeric Economics (Iliad 23.736-37)’. The PDF is here.
Today’s paper is another (quadrisyllabic) Persïanum. The PDF is here.
After working on three different notes on Martial, I decided to finish one of my (quadrisyllabic) Persïana for today’s paper. Though allusively written, this one is not appropriate for younger readers, and may be found here in PDF form.
