(via Metafilter 4/20/14)

I would like to write a novel about Propertius, about Cynthia, & about their milieu. It would not be about how much these guys were like ourselves. It would be about the strangeness, the incomprehensibility, of their desires: it would be like Satyricon--except with books. Propertius was not one of us. I like that.
