Inspired by listening to, and reading, Natalie Haynes to revisit the Aeneid for the first time since my O Levels, but maybe not yet up to reading it in Latin again. #virgil #aeneid #nataliehaynes #classics #book #books #bookstagram #currentlyreading #classicalliterature #latin #coffee #booksandcoffee #coffeeandbooks #caffeine #caffeineaddict #wakeupandsmellthecoffee #muswellhill #muswellhillbilly #n10 #cotebrasseriemuswellhill

What a marvellous book. Ms Haynes writes with such insight, clarity and enthusiasm about the enduring appeal and relevance of Classical Greek and Latin literature.

I have enjoyed Natalie Haynes‘s ‘The Ancient Guide to Modern Life‘ so much that I have decided to revisit Juvenal‘s Satires, which I remember grappling with in the original Latin forty odd years ago at school. #nataliehaynes #theancientguidetomodernlife #juvenal #satires #classics #literature #latin #i💙nataliehaynes

Sophoclessweetheart This sounds wonderful x 2y
Eyejaybee @Wanderingwithwords I have only just started it, but it is marvellous so far. 2y
Vikkiha Haven‘t quite got round to this yet but I‘ve been planning to since I heard her on the Book Shambles podcast a while back. She was really knowledgeable and funny, I couldn‘t help but add all her books to my wish list. 2y

Eyejaybee @Vikkiha I have enjoyed her programmes on BBC Radio 4, and loved her novels, The Amber Fury and The Children of Jocasta. She has a great prose style, and imparts a huge amount of knowledge about the Classics without ever being patronising. 2y
Vikkiha I haven‘t listed to her Radio 4 programmes, going to see if any are on iplayer. Thanks for the tip. 😊 2y
Eyejaybee @Vikkiha I am hoping to go to the recording of her next show on 23 May. 2y
Vikkiha Good luck, hope you tks. Enjoy! 2y

A marvellous retelling of the Oedipus story from the women‘s point of view. Utterly gripping, and written with great empathy and understanding.
