“The Blues of Achilles,” Joe Goodkin, Chicago-based Musician
The Blues of Achilles is a 17-song conversation between Joe Goodkin and Homer's Iliad. It captures the grief, horror, and love of Homer's epic tale as experienced by characters such as Achilles, Patroclus, Priam, Chryseis, Briseis, Andromache, and others. Following this engaging and moving guitar performance, evocative of the bards of Homer's time, Goodkin will entertain questions from the audience.
Joe Goodkin is a Chicago-based singer/songwriter with a Bachelor's Degree in Classics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. For decades he has toured the country performing his original one-person song interpretations of Homer's Odyssey (A Folk Opera) and Iliad (The Blues of Achilles). He has given almost 400 performances between the two pieces in forty-four states in the US and in Europe at such institutions as Harvard, Stanford, University of Chicago, UC-Berkeley, and the American School for Classical Studies in Athens. He has also performed at VA hospitals as part of recreational therapy for veterans experiencing PTSD. More info about his work can be found at,, and

“David Walker, the Abolitionist Movement, and the Reframing of the Classics,” Timothy Joseph, College of the Holy Cross
The black abolitionist David Walker’s (1796/7?–1830) four-article Appeal (1829) is a landmark work of American political writing about the cruelty of the institution of slavery in the United States and the need for immediate abolition. In the work, which was immediately condemned and banned in much of the US, Walker drawers on models from across the Mediterranean world to underscore his points. For example, he brings into relief the extraordinary sufferings of enslaved persons in the US through a comparison with conditions of the Israelites in Egypt, the helots in Sparta, and the enslaved under Roman rule—a direct response to Thomas Jefferson’s argument about the superior conditions of enslaved persons in the US. Elsewhere Walker discusses Egypt as the wellspring of learning for the entire Mediterranean world, and he figures the Carthaginian general Hannibal as a representative of all people of African origins, at all time, in their fight against European oppressors—and he anticipates the arrival of another Hannibal to unite African-Americans in the fight against oppression in the US. The Appeal thus stands as an important example of reframing and redirecting ancient models, long used by prominent American figures such as Jefferson for the defense of slavery, toward the causes of freedom and justice.

Timothy Joseph attended the College of the Holy Cross as a Bean Classics Scholar and then taught Latin at Cresskill Junior-Senior High School in New Jersey from 1998 to 2001. He went on to earn a PhD in Classical Philology from Harvard University in 2007. He joined the classics department at Holy Cross in 2006. He has served as department chair and as director of the Classical Association of New England’s Summer Institute at Brown University. Currently, he serves as CANE’s president.

Joseph’s research concentrates on Latin historiography and epic poetry with a focus on the literature of the early Roman empire. He has authored Thunder and Lament: Lucan on the Beginnings and Ends of Latin Epic (Oxford University Press, 2022) and Tacitus the Epic Successor (Brill, 2012) and has contributed “Tacitus and Epic” to A Companion to Tacitus (Blackwell, 2012), “Cornelius Tacitus: Annals” to The Literary Encyclopedia (2013), and “Caesar in Vergil and Lucan” to The Cambridge Companion to the Writings of Julius Caesar (Cambridge, 2017). On occasion Joseph writes for The Conversation about topics such as Martin Luther's King's lived engagement with the Classics and echoes of Roman history in the ongoing transformation of the U.S. Senate and presidency.

“Insights on the Fall of the Roman Empire from the ‘Outsider’s’ Perspective of Alaric the Goth,” Douglas Boin, St. Louis University
Professor Boin returns as a B-C webinar presenter to share insights on his latest research that resulted in the publication of Alaric the Goth: An Outsider’s History of the Fall of Rome (W.W. Norton, 2020). Honored as one of The Economist’s favorite books of 2020, the book earned Boin St. Louis University’s Senior Faculty Scholarly Works Award. Boin brings to life one of the most pivotal - and little understood—figures of ancient history, Alaric the Goth, to better understand the last days of the Roman Empire. Boin tells the story of Rome — a really well known, well-studied topic — but through the eyes of an immigrant. In doing so, Boin makes ancient history feel interesting because it turned the tables on who was important. People from the margins are not often put at the center of the story of the Roman Empire. Find more about Boin’s work on Alaric.

Douglas Boin, trained in the classics and archaeology, earned his PhD and MA from the University of Texas at Austin and his BA from Georgetown University. Boin holds a full professorship in St. Louis University’s department of history. Boin received an Innovative Teaching Fellowship, Reinert Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning, Saint Louis University in 2014. He has also taught at Georgetown University and the University of Texas at Austin. Boin has authored Alaric the Goth: An Outsider’s History of the Fall of Rome (W.W. Norton, 2020), Late Antiquity: A Social and Cultural History (Wiley, 2017), Coming Out Christian in the Roman World (Bloomsbury Press, 2015) and Ostia in Late Antiquity (Cambridge University Press, 2013).

Boin’s intellectual interests are driven by a strong desire to interrogate the social history of Republican, Imperial and Late Roman religions. He is also keenly intent on exploring broader issues related to the transformation of Roman society—working at the intersection of politics and religion in ancient history. His research largely draws upon archaeological, anthropological, and sociological approaches to religion, as well as recent research on social memory, landscape, and the construction of identity. Boin charts the transformations and economic changes that characterized Rome, Italy, and the Western provinces during the imperial and late Roman periods. He incorporates epigraphic material, as well as smaller objects like lamps, glassware, and ivory, to reconstruct a more intimate image of Roman daily life—exploring the social, cultural and visual continuities that bind the Roman “Age of Augustus” to the late Roman “World of Augustine” —and beyond. Current avenues of interest include the city, people, and history of Rome in Late Antiquity to issues related to the transformation of Roman imperial cult.

“To Gaze from Elsewhere: ‘Looking’ at Pasts and Futures in Mexican and Puerto Rican Classical Reception,” Joshua Hartman, Bowdoin College
This talk introduces major figures within the history of Puerto Rican and Mexican receptions of Greek and (especially) Latin literature. Two case studies will focus on Neo-Latin poetry in Mexico and vernacular poetry in Puerto Rico. The first will comprise a longer investigation of a Neo-Latin epic from colonial Mexico, the Guadalupe of Jose Antonio Villerías (1695–1728), focused especially on how the poem’s principal actors “look” at the past, what the politics of such looking may be, and how they are informed by engagement with the Latin epic tradition. As a kind of epilogue, I will also preview a new project in Puerto Rican reception: an analysis of Luis Muñoz Rivera’s Mens Divinior (c. 1900), a Spanish poem that examines the vitality of the classical tradition in Latin America, including perspectives on “looking” at the past and future, in dialogue with ancient and modern literary traditions.

Joshua Hartman earned his BA in classics, history, and Latin from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and his MA and PhD in classics from the University of Washington-Seattle. He has also studied and taught at the University of Münster in Germany. He served as a Latin teaching assistant at Edgewood High School in Madison, WI, and also worked for the Wisconsin Center for Academically Talented Youth. Currently teaching at Bowdoin College, Hartman has also taught at the University of Washington, the University of Waterloo, and Kalamazoo College.

His research focuses on the relationship between literature and memory, especially during late antiquity. He is currently working on the monographic adaptation of his dissertation, Poetry and Cultural Memory in Late Antiquity. He has published articles on Greek and Roman literature, Roman cultural memory, and classical reception in Puerto Rico. While pursuing his studies, he lived and worked in France, Germany, Spain, and Italy. He has developed proficiency in Spanish, German, and French. Hartman has collaborated with colleagues to translate material from German into English for other scholars’ academic publications and has translated Spanish, French, Latin, and Greek for use in his own publications.

Editor’s Note
Dear Colleagues,

By now, you’re all back in the classroom and enjoying a return to something more akin to normal. Nonetheless, I’m sure you’re experiencing bumps and setbacks embedded in the legacy of the pandemic and its resultant supply chain disruption. That disruption has certainly affected the publishing world and especially so at a small, niche company like Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers. Not only are we experiencing the rising cost of paper, shipping supplies, and shipping itself, but also the more troublesome problem of paper shortages!

So, we are most grateful to those of you who have so graciously shared in our mutual predicament of paper shortages and resultant delays in receiving books. As you’ll see in this issue’s update on the Roman Calendar, we’ve had to secure a new printer and, thus, have a new projected arrival date.

With this issue’s Teaching Tip, we launch another round of Latin stories, written by Emma Vanderpool and edited by Amelia Wallace and yours truly, to accompany Latin for the New Millennium, Level 1. This year’s series will consist of seven new stories to accompany chapters three to nine.

We have incorporated the seven Latin stories, which complemented each of the seven review units, published in eLitterae last year, into the current version of Lumina: Latin for the Millennium, Level 1. The stories will also be available as a set in the LNM Teachers’ Lounge and in our complimentary Distance Learning Resources. Amelia Wallace has written a set of exercises to accompany each review’s story available exclusively in Lumina.
For over forty years now, I have attended classics conferences—as attendee, as presenter, as presider, as officer, and, for the past decade, as exhibitor. In February of my very first year teaching at Loyola Academy in Wilmette, Illinois, at the recommendation of the late Patrick Flaherty, a colleague whose classes I had observed at New Trier West High School, I attended the annual gathering of the Illinois Classics Conference hosted by Northwestern University. My participation in the ICC enriched my teaching and introduced me to lifelong friends whose colleagueship, advice, and ideas significantly my professional and personal growth.

One of those good friends is Tom Sienkewicz, whose enthusiasm, energy, and industry transformed the classics program at Monmouth College in Illinois. Through the decades, Tom has nurtured many a Latin teacher and mentored his high school colleagues throughout the state. I suspect you might enjoy his memories of being a classics major at the College of the Holy Cross.
While at Monmouth, Tom was named in 1985 the inaugural holder of the Minnie Billings Capron Chair of Classical Languages. In 2017, Tom retired after thirty-three remarkable years at Monmouth. Today, Robert Holschuh Simmons holds the Capron Chair at Monmouth. Bob, in so many ways, shares the enthusiasm, energy, and dedication of his predecessor. Like Tom, he is currently serving as vice president of the Illinois Classical Conference and will become president following this term. As Tom ensured that Monmouth would regularly host the Illinois Latin Tournament as a means of promoting classics at Monmouth, Bob has established the biennial Classics Day at the college. Like Tom, Bob is keen about supporting Illinois high school teachers and their students. He played a key role in keeping the Latin program at the local high school alive. I think you’ll appreciate his essay on how we can save Latin in our public high schools.
I’m sure it comes as no surprise that I heartily encourage you to engage with your colleagues at other schools. And, I assure you there is no substitute for the in-person conference where your learning is spontaneous and informal as much as it is formal presentations. I look forward to kicking off the 2022–2023 with my friends at the Classical Association of the Atlantic States meeting in October at the historic Hotel DuPont in Wilmington, Delaware.

Celebrating our second decade of complimentary professional development webinars, join us for the launch of the fall series with musician Joe Goodkin performing live his original work The Blues of Achilles on Tuesday, September 27 from 6:00 to 7:00 pm Central Time. The fall roster of webinars is published in this month’s eLitterae.

Wishing you all good things in your classrooms!

All best,
Don Sprague

I forgot to mention that last month’s issue, August 2022, is our two hundredth! issue of eLitterae.
Teaching Tip: A Latin Story to Accompany Latin for the New Millennium, Level 1, Chapter 3
This is the first in a series of seven stories to accompany chapters 3–9 in LNM 1. While complementary to LNM, the stories can serve all first-year Latin students.
This story recounts an episode of Roman history from the historian Titus Livius, who is known as Livy. In this episode, Lucius Quinctius Cincinnatus, known simply as Cincinnatus, is called upon to serve his country and protect the city of Rome from danger. 
This statue was commissioned in 1984 by the Cincinnatus Association, an organization dedicated to improving the life of the citizens of the city of Cincinnati, Ohio. Sculpted by Eleftherios Karkadoulias (1936–2015), the statue commemorates the city’s namesake, Cincinnatus. Cincinnatus is depicted with his plow as well as with the Roman fasces in his hands. He is the “citizen farmer,” called from the fields to assume, as represented by the fasces, political power. In 1790, Northwest Territories Governor Arthur St. Clair0 as a tribute to Cincinnatus’s volunteer spirit as a citizen-soldier, renamed the Ohio city. Wikimedia Commons. Creative Commons 4.0.
Titus Līvius poēta nōn est. Līvius historicus est. Fābulās dē patriā nārrat.

In fābulā Līviī, Lūcius Quīnctius Cincinnātus nauta nōn est. Mīles et agricola est.

Cincinnātus in casā habitat. Cincinnātus est agricola et in agrīs ambulat. Rīvōs et terram cūrat. Cincinnātus fōrmam āthlētae habet. Animum fortis virī habet.

Virī in viā ambulant quia Cincinnātum vidēre volunt. Virī Cincinnātum in agrō vident. Deinde virī Cincinnātum vocant et amīcum exspectant. Cincinnātus ad virōs ambulat.

Virī vocant: “Rōma, patria tua, in perīculō est! Cincinnāte, tū animum fortis virī habēs! Tū fōrmam fortis āthlētae habēs! Tū, Cincinnāte, dēbēs esse dictātor patriae!”

Cincinnātus agrōs cūrāre amat. Sed patriam valdē amat et perīculum nōn timet.

Cincinnātus cum virīs Rōmam ambulant. Ad perīculum ambulant. Cincinnātus, vir fortis, nōn timet.

Rōmae Cincinnātus nunc mīles et dictātor est. Rōmam et virōs bene cūrat.

Cincinnātus potestātem diū nōn tenet. Dictātor diū nōn est quia agrōs et terram cūrāre vult. Cincinnātus Rōmam bene cūrat et ad agrōs redit. Cincinnātus agricola est.
