    What would the Son-of-Man get up to in present-day Rome' Would he wander the Galleria Borghese, loiter outside nightclubs, ride trams, tip accordionists' How would Keats feel about the neon Dior sign that flashes away above the Spanish Steps' Are there ways to avoid Vespas on the sidewalks' Rules for carving a PietA' And exactly which painter is responsible for the ugliest Jesus in the history of Western Art' A tour of Rome like no other, the poems of Circus Maximus ask these questions and more. Join David Starkey as he shines a torch on the sights, sounds, mysteries and metaphors of the Eternal City. David Starkey is the former Poet Laureate of Santa Barbara, a senior Fulbright scholar, and a six-time nominee for the Pushcart Prize. His latest volume of poetry is A Few Things You Should Know About the Weasel (Biblioasis, 2010).
