Indeed, I truly enjoyed these day’s readings of Lysias. He is far more interesting than Xenofont’s Anabsis. I’ve never read rhetoric speeches before, if we don’t count the few chapters from Cicero’s Catilina which we worked over last semester. The style, as from what I’ve see til now, is very intriguing, smooth line of the story and very beautiful exposing of the details and motives.
After the first two days, it is no longer so difficult to cope with the text. And surely, it would be awesome if we read something from this author after the intensive course is over.

I bought Ovid’s Metamorphoses today.
