    As a Classics Major and longtime Latin Teacher I am obviously partial to the great Roman writers but I love re reading all the Classics as often as I can because I discover new nuances and details as well as turns of phrase each time These stories are timeless and well worth reading I enjoy very much Ovid's writings on mythological characters and their doings
