Allen: "Ovid's writing about his transmigration to Tomis uses every cliche available to establish rapport with his readers. Shameless appropriation from anything going. Exaggeration. All marketing."
I think we are making the same point here.
Also, I'm glad to hear you have a copy of the book. :-)

Cheers,
John

I am glad too. I plan to spend my time rereading it and taking copious notes in the next week before Greek Orthodox Valentine's Day.

For a moment, I thought a second thread details my general wrongness was popping up. Not that it would surprise me.

I am, however, confused by this.

I don't think it was a particularly good idea to bump this thread. It's six months old and, unless anyone has something useful to add, let's let it drop again now, please.

mea culpa

(I know that much!)



Edit: Hey Andrew. Sorry. I only started looking at this thread because I saw that a 'guest' was. Then I posted a silly Oscar Wilde quote. Ignore me.

Ha! No need to apologize. I thought it was funny.

How do you see what people are looking at?
