Virgil and Homer: Newspapers on the Classics

As a rather casual part-time Latin teacher, attempting once a week on the adult ed circuit to teach grammar through the excellent text, Wheelock, and introduce students to the Aeneid in the Fagles translation, I'm thrilled to have found two fascinating blog entries, one in the New York Times and the other in the Guardian, devoted to Virgil and Homer respectively. It's not often that newspaper bloggers write about the classics (though it's more frequent in the UK than the U.S.).
