I studied classics at Harvard and Oxford. I’ve read a Lot of Latin and Greek, especially didactic poetry – poetry meant to educate people. I’m fascinated by how much has not really changed over the past 2,000 years, even if our preferred literary formats have. I once gave a speech to a crowd of thousands, entirely in Latin. (I had hat-hair and YouTube commenters criticized my pronunciation 🎓🤷🏻‍♂️)
