Sunday Links, 4/25/21

I’m delighted to say that I’ve found at least one other person who cultivates these sorts of literary-minded links. Notes in the Margin is an excellent blog that has a “Literary Links” section.

  1. “Bartsch’s spirited, readable translation is a […] a labor of love by a scholar-poet who has examined every nuance, matched each line of English translation to the Latin lines, and attended to problematic lines that continue to stump scholars.”
  2. Following on from the Washington Post’s op-ed in favor of keeping the Classics at Howard, here are some letters to the editor.
  3. Biblical justice versus social justice.
  4. New (to me): a column from Paris Review: “Feminize your canon.”
  5. On not rushing through books: “That’s when I realized this is what I was doing with my reading: rushing through books as fast as I could to get to the next one on my can’t-wait-to-read-it TBR, and also trying to break the previous year’s number of how many books I had read.”
