the list

December 26, 2008 at 10:40 pm (thinking) ()

Here are the books on my immediate to-read list, in no particular order, although I know I’ll just add random crap as I go:

 

Fiction:

Lysistrata, Aristophanes (got a new lovely Sandglass hardcover edition with illustrations by Picasso)

Heroides, Ovid

The Secret History of Moscow, Ekaterina Sedia (very excited about this)

The Love-Artist, Jane Alison (also very excited about this)

Memoirs of a Medieval Woman: The Life and Times of Margery Kempe, Lousie Collis

The Annotated Hans Christian Anderson, edited by Maria Tatar

 

Non-Fiction:

Slaves and Masters in the Roman Empire: A Study in Social Control, K.R. Bradley

Greek Religion (not just the sections on Orphism and Dionysos), Walter Burkert

The Greeks and the Irrational, E.R. Dodds

The Twelve Caesars, Suetonius

The Greek Way, Edith Hamilton

I know I’ll have a ton of Jane Austen to add to this list come January as I’m taking a class on her, so that’s in the works, as well.
