I absolutely love Memorial--and I got to see Alice Oswald perform it once, which is a sublime experience, if you get the chance.

I should have said: the deadline for this has unfortunately passed for this year--but for planning purposes down the line!

A great opportunity for young classicists at the Penn Museum. All you college students looking for internships, see below. Thank you for the PSA!

Hello! It's true that P has a doctoring scene in the Iliad, but Homer tells us (Iliad 11.831-2) that he learned how to do that from Achilles who in turn was taught by the centaur Chiron. Achilles gets overlooked as a healer because of all the killing, but he is also skilled.

Love this tender image of Achilles tending Patroclus’ wounds. Achilles and Patroclus, by Bertel Thorvaldsen, 1837.

Hello Bethanne! Sadly no, though Freya would make a great subject! I just think she's cool--and a sort-of Circe figure. I feel like I would need to spend at least ten years studying Norse mythology and culture before I felt confident enough to write from within it!
