    Greek and Roman poetry is elaborate and beautiful. It is difficult for English speakers today to catch the meaning of every line or word, due to the use of slang and the gap in time. The list you provided of characters is severely long and would be extremely difficult to ever memorize. But I thank you for the extra information.

    I love reading about the Greek and Roman play writing pasts. I think it is so interesting that they had so many Gods and Goddesses. In today’s culture, even the most popular religions only believe in one God. When I first learned about all of the different Gods and Goddesses, I was so interested in the meaning of the each individual’s name and all of the differences. Reading this just made me remember some of the names I learned back in high school.

      Hi Emily,
      I also remember learning some of the names of the Greek Gods and Goddesses back in high school. It seems like it is so many to remember, but I’m sure for the people in ancient Greece it wasn’t a big issue.
