Mary Beard's by now famous blog A Don's Life has been running on
the TLS website for nearly three years. In it she has made her name
as a wickedly subversive commentator on the world in which we live.
Her central themes are the classics, universities and teaching --
and much else besides. What are academics for? Who was the first
African Roman emperor? Looting -- ancient and modern. Are modern
exams easier? Keep lesbos for the lesbians. Did St Valentine exist?
What made the Romans laugh? That is just a small taste of this
selection (and some of the choicer responses) which will inform,
occasionally provoke and cannot fail to entertain.
