Reading to the Department of Classics Research Seminar group and The Classical Association of Scotland, Glasgow & West Centre on 28th October, 2008 was a real pleasure. It was a very rewarding experience to have my versions of Horace so enthusiastically well received and to have yet another opportunity to test my work-in-progress. I enjoyed the questions from the floor. I find these always make me reconsider what I’m doing and why I’m doing it.
The suggestion that perhaps I was doing with Horace what Logue has done with Homer was praise indeed!
Once again we finished the evening by retiring to a rather nice Italian restaurant for a meal and wine, (not quite Falernian), but absolutely the only way to celebrate Horace.
My thanks go to Luke and Costas for inviting me, to Susan and to Alan for his wonderful introduction and to everyone who came to the reading and received my work so warmly.
