Nosa Lewani's collection, A Foreign Nostalgia: Collecting Greek and Latin Texts in the 21st Century, explores their own connection to the classics.

"As I feel is embodied in my journey to and from the pocket Vergil, I have found these less expressible reasons in the teachers and friends who share a love for these works. Those outside love to tease about our obsession with a “dead” language—an attack which stings because I can see how much has died, even within me, around it. Yet with every type of book in this collection, starting from the language and ideas I share with these men from long ago, and radiating into the laughs, debates, lessons, memories from those around me—I know there is much that is still alive."
