Then you haven't read the Iliad and the Metamorphosis by Ovid.

Strong stuff.

Plus the Epigrams by Martial, no wonder they were forbidden for quite some time !

Not that the Epigrams are full of murder - but full of what you might never see in any politically correct soap opera. It's rather stuff for newspapers like the infamous Sun, or the German Bild and Express.

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
