As for Ovid and his continuing reception in Western literature, I leave you with a quotation from the Slovenian philosopher, Slavoj Žižek:
'The more opera is dead, the more it flourishes'

Salve and Euge!
It's the month of Janiarius...Looking back to the old year and forward to the new..I have decided to use the Oxford Classics edition of Classical Literary Criticism.edited by D.A Russell and M. Winterbottom ( could there be a more apposite name for this season?). I think that it differs from the Penguin in the areas of translation as well as textual notes and introduction. This should give us some interesting angles from which to examine , evaluate and ultimately enjoy the work. I look forward to delving into this selection of texts with you all soon!

Salve or Chaire!
There are two options for January meeting of Legendum. Classical Literary Criticism...as in Plato, Longinus and Horace..or...Boethius - The Consolation of Philosophy. Let me know which one you prefer either in the comments section or the other standard comms channels.
Have a great Saturnalia!
