        >Tacitus. Was he mute?
        I never read Tacitus. But I was actually wondering the other day, if he has a way of making implicit statements.
        Does he make you read between the lines?

      Quite the opposite. He was called Vergil but they started calling him Virgil in the middle ages because ’vir’ means manly/virtuous.

      There are two poets in the Odyssey itself and one of them is held hostage by the suitors so it is speculated they may have been self inserts for the narrator. One is a hostage and the other is blind.

        Maybe it was because Homer was famously blind that it acquired the colloquial meaning.

    No. We cannot. Did you know that Euler, the most prolific mathematician of all time, was a fervent Christian with an eidetic memory? He had the entire Illiad memorized, line and page. In his old age, he went blind, but with the help of scribes to write for him, he actually became even more productive--averaging one paper per week. Man is capable of much more than you might imagine.
