Dr Luke Pitcher Visits St Paul’s

September 18, 2015

On Monday 14 September, Dr Luke Pitcher of Somerville College, Oxford visited the Classics Society to give a talk on ‘How to start a story in the ancient world’. He illustrated the importance of openings through a breadth of examples, from the Homeric epic to the oratory of Cicero. The speech was enlightening not only for those studying texts discussed by Dr Pitcher, but for all present in its engaging overview of beginnings in Classical literature.
