Mr McCarthy's Library Selection

Currently featuring in the Library is a selection of books from our Classical Studies colleague, Peter McCarthy, the second of a series from staff which we'll be featuring (see the first from scientist Peter Jackson here). This is a way of sharing with pupils and staff the books which we love and have made us the people (and teachers) we are.

Among Peter's choices are Meditations by Marcus Aurelius, and Homer's Iliad. On a more modern and personal note, he writes about his brother Ted's book November Wedding and other poems:-

My brother Ted is the artistically creative member of our family and this collection of poems was published in 1998. We were all very proud of his achievements and it was a great thrill to see his book on the bookshop shelves, beside Irish poets like Yeats and Heaney.
