Current Book - May 2016

  • Memoirs of Hadrian
    by Marguerite Yourcenar.
    Hosted by: Blair Hoxby

    "This lyrical novel recreates Hadrian's lost memoirs and immerses readers in the consciousness of Rome's most complex emperor. It explores the mysteries of life, from the risks and rewards or erotic abandon to the intoxication of political rule. Turmoil in the Middle East? Homosexual heartbreak? The Romans dealt with it all before we did."

    Blair Hoxby, associate professor of English
