Current Reading - from someone who doesn't read (much) fiction!

Nov 19, 2020, 11:11am

Alongside me as I type is DS Robertson's 'Greek and Roman Architecture', as I'm needing to delve into stuff on Nîmes. As for books I'm 'reading' as in cover-to-cover, Æschylus' Oresteia (Fagles) for the nth time (the opening of the Agamemnon is the greatest opening page in the whole of literary history in my view) - this time alongside Lebeck's reading - 'The Oresteia - a study in language and structure' (Harvard 1971), which just happens to be the great Peter Levi's personal review copy.

Fiction-wise, I'm fighting my way through Trollope's 'Dr Thorne'. After the glories of The Warden and Barchester Towers it's heavy going, but I need to progress to find out the goings on in Barsetshire!

This is my first post in the group - hope it's the kind of thing you're looking for.
