Finally started Ovid's Metamorphosis. Two chapters in and three women have been raped by gods, plus the attempted rape of another one. Fun book.
Yeah. I was a bit hesitant going in, because this was published in 8 But, it reads pretty easily. The pacing is kind of crazy though, with so much shit happening in a little amount of space. I wish it had more breaks or chapters or something. I feel exhausted after reading just one.Ovid was one interesting writer, I'll give him that. Though I would never have even considered liking the Metamorphoses if they weren't written and translated so damn well.
Around the same time, in New York, an election pamphlet urged New York voters to join "Shuttle" the weaver, "Plane" the joiner, "Drive" the carter, "Mortar" the mason, "Tar" the mariner, "Snip" the tailor, "Smallrent" the fair-minded landlord, and "Johnpoor" the tenant, against "Gripe the Merchant, Squeeze the Shopkeeper, Spintext and Quible the Lawyer."
