A Companion to Petronius by Edward Courtney. Great, great book, really enlightening, especially having just read the Satyricon. I'm going to be doing a senior honors thesis over the coming schoolyear, and it looks like it's going to be on the same topic as one of my recent term papers--Petronius in film. Summer is basically the research period for anyone who does one of these things, so I'm getting an early start.

Also, I'm (finally) going to read all of Ovid's Metamorphoses--it's definitely something I should have under my belt, but specifically I want to get to the Orpheus and Eurydice episode, because a theater-major friend of mine asked me to consult on her upcoming production of a modern interpretation of the myth, which will be put on in the spring ('09). Should be fun.

For Honors English 12 I have to read 4 books (one world, one American, one British, one Shakespeare) over the summer and write a two page scholarly handout about each. I chose the following:

We by Zamyatin
The Last Man by Mary Shelley
It Can't Happen Here by Sinclair Lewis
Pericles by Shakespeare

Already started We, and I like it so far. Anyone read of the others?

Catch 22 by Joseph Heller. Tried starting it once, didn't get too far, but this time I'm really enjoying it.

I approve.

Yeah, honestly, even undecided, Obama vs. McCain is a better election line-up than the last two presidential elections combined.

You would expect Obama to win in a landslide, but there is still the fear in the back of my mind that there are Republicans stupid enough to support McCain even after these eight years.
