"While many scholars build careers through increasingly elaborate reconstructions of the ancient world, [Mary] Beard consistently stresses the limits of our knowledge, the precariousness of our constructs and the ambiguity or contradiction inherent in many of our sources."--New York Times for The Fires of Vesuvius
In her now-famous blog, Mary Beard has made her name as a wickedly subversive commentator on the world in which we live. Her central themes are classics, universities, and teaching, but she covers many other topics. This selection of entries from the blog will inform, provoke, and cannot fail to entertain. On a good week, Mary's blog receives a staggering forty thousand hits a day. Find it at: http: //timesonline.typepad.com/dons_life/
Mary Beard is professor of classics at Cambridge and classics editor at The Times Literary Supplement. Her books include The Fires of Vesuvius, The Roman Triumph, and The Parthenon.
