Aw, I just want to throw up something from my current poetry crush Horace, the Frank O'Hara of the Augustan world. So funny, louche, smart... I'd love to find a cheesy middlebrow novel about the Augustan age & BFFs Virgil & Horace, with Ovid & Catullus as part of the pack. Has it been written? So juicy! What are all the classicists waiting for?
