glaukopis: Painting: Lady Agnew of Lochnaw (Default)
To my own surprise, I have two Rhysling-eligible poems this year (that both have Gratuitous French titles is a coincidence):

"La Dame à la licorne" : Strange Horizons, September 2012
"La Mort et son puceau" : inkscrawl, April 2012

The deadline for nominations has been extended to February 28.
glaukopis: Woman in classical dress (classics)
If you had asked me, I would have said that Patroclus is the only character Homer addresses in the second person--and I would have been wrong. He does the same with Menelaus in 17.702-704:

οὐδ' ἄρα σοὶ Μενέλαε διοτρεφὲς ἤθελε θυμὸς
τειρομένοις ἑτάροισιν ἀμυνέμεν, ἔνθεν ἀπῆλθεν
Ἀντίλοχος, μεγάλη δὲ ποθὴ Πυλίοισιν ἐτύχθη . . .


I can't immediately say what the significance of this is (that's not my topic!), but it's an interesting note along the way.
