Editor/videographer, Alison Marek ; music, Gweneth Jackson

Commentary: Susan Edmunds, Prudence Jones, Gregory Nagy

Three classics professors outline metaphoric links between
spinning and weaving and ideas of poetic composition and
writing in relation to textile production and design in
Greece and Rome. Techiques and methods of textile
production used in Greek and Roman antiquity are
demonstrated -- including spinning a thread with a
spindle and weaving cloth on a warp-weighted loom
