But nil desperandum (do not despair). It's really no Herculean task. With The Classics, author Caroline Taggart presents a lively refresher course of the most important "stuff" you need to know. From Homer's Odyssey to "alpha" male, from the Aeneid to Roman aqueducts, fill in the gaps in your education and reacquaint yourself with . . .
