Gold Discusses Modern vs. Ancient Valentines for LiveScience.com

Posted February 14, 2010
Tags Barbara Gold Classics Hamilton In the News Valentines
Barbara Gold, the Edward North Professor of Classics, was interviewed for the Livescience.com 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."
