Barbara Gold, the Edward North Professor of Classics, was interviewed for the Web site for a story titled "Valentines in Ancient Rome Were All About Pain" (2/14/10). "Unlike what you see in contemporary stores where we have valentines that are all clouds and dreamy and romantic, the Romans had a very different kind of take on love," said Gold, "It's not something that is a good feeling usually; it's something that torments you."
