What period(s) of history chiefly interest(s) you? What about literary interests?
I am mainly interested in classical history, but my adviser suggests that I should become an Americanist. Combining the two, as in investigating the influence of Caesar et.al. on the American military tradition and policies regarding western expansion and the civil war, works for me though.
Pindar, to me, still reads like the visual equivalent of abstract expressionism--beautiful, but too far past my horizon. At this stage, I look forward to reading Homer fluently. I only know enough to know what a beginner I am. Lately, I have been finally able to decipher Vergil in an enjoyable rather than excruciating way, but it is all still slow going.
