Poor Things

Peter Levi (1931-2000), interview with Jannika Hurwitt, Paris Review (Fall 1979):
I don't think there's anything so odd about being a classical scholar. It's just that most people aren't classical scholars because they don't know Greek and Latin, poor things.
His advice to young writers, from the same interview:
Steer clear of the writing departments of universities. Steer clear of English. Learn foreign, preferably dead languages, but learn them properly.
