Twitter: IVLIVSCAESAR

Now that Caesar - dictator perpetuo! - is going to form part of the Latin AP curriculum, I wanted to make some kind of contribution. Although I have no real interest in reading Caesar's own writing (it's just not my style, sad to say..), I'm very interested in helping to provide some historical context for Caesar's fascinating life. So, in addition to the Roman historians who are already available online, I thought I would digitize the Latin translation of Plutarch's Life of Caesar, and Twitter it in Latin and English.

You can find me here at Twitter, with the username IVLIVSCAESAR.

The sources I'll be using for this little project are:
I'll update this post with additional information as the project evolves. Iacta alea esto!

I have taken the Latin Text from the Latin Library website; I will send them a link to this page so that they can correct their text (there is no way to correct previous Twitter posts).
