Hi,<br /><br />I'm a student of Classics at Leiden University (The Netherlands), currently working on my thesis on the oblique optative in Ancient Greek.

Slim Shady

Oh hey, my name is Keith. I am philosophy underdrad who's been on an unaccountable leave of absence since October; but has been gearing up for readmittance this Fall by learning Greek in my spare hours.

shakespeare in latin?

Hello all,<br />just wondering if anyone knew if there are any translations of Shakespeare into Latin on the web? I'm sure some bored scholar has to have attempted it at least once.
