They, subsequently, removed all the reviews I’d written through the years for the many other writers who, like myself, rely […] Read more of this blog post »

"“What god can help me tell so dread a story?
Who could describe that carnage in a song - “

Well, the answer of course is Virgil, a poet of the era of Augustus’ Rome. Why does he write it? Many literary critics have condemned the Aeneid for being st..." Read more of this review »
