Sir: William Rees-Mogg (17 August) asks, 'Who now reads Aeschylus, Virgil, Dante or Milton, except for students and their professors?' Who indeed?

I have no experience of such classical works yet do not feel a lack of 'the spritual, the artistic and the intellectual'. Many more recent and relevant scholars fulfil these aspects of life.

Perhaps the chairman of the Broadcasting Standards Council should use less of the historical to relate to contemporary culture?

Yours faithfully,
