Longinus’ On the Sublime explored the sublime effects in Greek and Roman literature. My purpose here is two-fold. First, to review briefly how Longinus defined the sublime, and second, to illustrate examples of the sublime in several works of modern rock music. In particular, I will examine selected guitar solos by Eric Clapton and others, as well as examining the poetry and singing of artists such as Bob Dylan and Adele. All in all, it will show that the sublime effect is not dead, even in our relatively modest contemporary Western society.

I am particularly interested in issues of linguistics and pedagogy. Most of my work deals with applying Reading Theory to teaching Latin/Greek. I am also heavily involved in Tennessee's Latin Helps publicity campaign. Friend Latin Helps on FB, follow @LatinHelps on Twitter, or search #latinhelps on any social medium.
