I gotta brush up on the classics!
Have you seen Titus? Thee doth recommend it though it be not ( hehe) historically accurate. I love Taymor's ability to contemporize the story .

(Maecilius Fuscus, Governor of Longovicium , Manchester, England. 238-244 AD)
And I have to read further about Juvenal. We brushed over him in a class I had a while back, but in a very superficial manner. Have just started reading Tacitus for the first time since being a student at St. John's College. Had forgotten what a good story teller he was and able to stick to the truth as he knew it at the same time.
Haven't seen Titus yet, but will very soon. Did you see Gods and Generals? If so, what did you think?
