Lo, where the stage, the poor, degraded stage,
Holds its warped mirror to a gaping age.

The picture above is a photo I took at Ostia on a rainy day in June 2006, peering out of the dark at light, life and enigmatic stones. Those interested will find a few more images of Rome and Pompeii (from a trip I took back in 1984) at the link below. I have also put on-line a few Latin e-texts: the Thyestes of Seneca and the Aenigmata (Latin riddles) of Symphosius and of Aldhelm.
Yet further below is a link to my schedule, with further links to the syllabi for courses I'm teaching at BGSU. Normally I teach some mix of Latin and Classical Civilization (Roman Life, Ancient Drama, Classical Myth), with the occasional Greek course for variety.
