Maybe the Ancients Knew Better

Maybe the Ancients Knew Better

As I read the various works available for discussion I find the stories and poems honest and forthcoming. There is a tendency in humanity to assume things that are not present in context to be implied in other words or deeds. While we praise honesty, we continually act against it by reading between the lines and seeking the sometimes-inexistent simile. Men assume women are in love with them all the time, women with men, men with men and women with women; not because we see evidence in the affirmative, but because we want innuendo and unclear vocabulary to mean what we choose to infuse it with. I feel we do the same with Catullus and Ovid, because we read what it is and make it to be something else, while interpreting what it is not, and attributing what it isn’t.
