A Hellenistic Anthology | Neil Hopkinson
post image

Ever since I finished Circe, I've been thinking about Theocritus' Idyll 11. All the references to pharmakon in Circe reminded me of pharmakon here - there ain't no cure for love - but it's been a while since I read it and the details are foggy.

So going for a re-read now. With my trusty middle Liddell at hand since my Greek is, to be generous, very rusty. If I stop after a few lines, let's chalk it up to this absolutely gorgeous day instead.

TimSpalding Secret rusty-Greek handshake! I no longer attempt Greek poetry myself, so kudos. Hellenistic poetry nearly broke me. Callimachus? Glorious and very hard! 9mo
llwheeler @TimSpalding Haha, hello! Thanks! I still attempt poetry but I'm just reading for myself, so I don't force myself to parse every single word as long as I get the jist. So that helps. I think I did read a little of Callimachus in undergrad... I don't have a huge desire to try him again though, not for quite a while at least. 9mo
TimSpalding @llwheeler My thing now is to read texts with Greek on one side and Latin on the other. I find one always solves the other, and that way I'm practicing either way. I find reading Greek without help a chore—I'm not in school anymore so it's harder to justify the pain. Also, I don't have the impulse control to read a Loeb without reading too much English :) 9mo
llwheeler @TimSpalding That's a great idea! I haven't tried that. Completely agree with you that the pain isn't worth it to read without help. I love Perseus for that, the ability to just click on a word and be like oh, weird aorist, okay, and carry on. 9mo
TimSpalding @llwheeler I mostly do it with the NT. But there are early-modern editions of practically every Greek author with facing Latin. People like Jefferson always read their Greek with Latin on the other side. Cheaters. 9mo

Making the complexities of hundreds of years of political and socio-economic change completely understandable.

' I swallowed. Standing in front of me was Rose. Rose, the girl who was the reason for why I was doing so badly. Rose, the girl who made my heart knock faster every time I saw her.. "--#dasmädchenmitdemrotenhoodie ♥
