"Excuse me that I trouble you thus with these rambling meditations.” - James Howell

The University of Iowa's Nonfiction Writing Program has introduced a new online resource: QUOTIDIANA, an online anthology of classical essays. This site compiles hundreds of essays, many of which are unavaliable anywhere else online, dating from antiquity to the early twentieth century. An invaluable resource for teaching, the site can also act as a source for filling in gaps in your casual reading. For the complete database of classical essays visit the QUOTIDANA Online Anthology here.
