“Then two brothers fell at the hands of Phineus. They were Broteas and Ammon, the famous boxers, who would have been able to overcome anything, if boxing gloves were able to overcome swords.”

Book 6 is done and done while listening to the Hawks and Jets game.
Book 7 is all about Vercingetorix and the last book attributed to Caesar. The last book, book 8 is by one of his friends.

One of the major works oboists learn is Benjamin Britten‘s Six Metamorphoses After Ovid. The movements are Pan, Phaeton, Niobe, Bacchus, Narcissus, & Arethusa. Since learning it in the mid 80s I‘ve thought I should read the book, but never got around to it. Until now. So far none of the 6 have appeared. Here‘s a link if you want to hear the piece. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ywSnArfKxmk

Palimpsest This is on my to read list this year as I‘ve wanted to read it for a long time. So many other works reference it. 2w
Lcsmcat @Palimpsest Yes! And lots of the stories are known from other cultural references, but I want to see what Ovid makes of them. 2w

So this year I decided to sign up for the #MountTbr challenge. I have seen the tag before but never really looked into it. I am trying for Mt Vancouver, which is 36 books. This is the first “normal” sized one I am working on. #Mounttbr2020

Catherine_Willoughby How was this book. Looks interesting 1w
