Huysman's attack on Golden Age Latin authors

Postby chad » Wed Mar 31, 2004 1:37 am

hi guys, i was just wondering if you've read J-K Huysman's caustic attack on Golden Age Latin authors? it's hilarious. An English translation is online (although it's a bit old and tortured, from an out of copyright edition--the new translations in bookstores are better):


There's also the original french version:


(Huysmans wasn't a classicist... he copied these opinions from an old German classicist I think).

Cheers, Chad. :)
