Re: [POETRY] Milton's Minor Poems - availle

So, Betty, what you are to check is in the 19th file. I read "1673" for "1637" at 58:27.00, but my revised reading now accords with that in the Gutenberg text: "168, 9 Thus 1637." I think that is the end of it, since the glitch you found in #22 has been dealt with by changing the text to agree with ...

Re: [POETRY] Milton's Minor Poems - availle

Availle, I uploaded the cover files to your site first (sorry), but then I zipped them according to directions and uploaded the Zip file using "covers-covers" as the MC. I named it as follows: ( https://librivox.org/uploads/availle/Milton_Minor_Poems.zip ). I did not understand the following instruc...

Re: [POETRY] Milton's Minor Poems - availle

I need to bring both of you up to date with my negotiations with David Widger, the Gutenberg editor of the text I am reading. He has made the changes I recommended, including the missing "not" at 25:47 in "Miscellaneous Poems." The corrected text now reads "And not fre'd my foe for naught." So that ...

Re: [POETRY] Milton's Minor Poems - availle

Availle, here is the introduction that I would like to appear at the head of this project: “On Shakespear 1630” typifies much of Milton’s poetry. By some miracle never yet explained, at age 24 he managed to get a 16-line encomium included in the Second Folio of the Bard’s collected works, 1632. Quit...

Re: [POETRY] Milton's Minor Poems - availle

I'm glad that this was the only point at which you saw a problem; "Philistims" didn't bother you, for instance. Yet this is exactly the kind of problem we face with this manuscript that has apparently never been proof-read. This particular problem can scarcely be explained as a scanning error, but i...

Re: [POETRY] Milton's Minor Poems - availle

Sorry about your computer difficulties and expense, but if it had to happen during this project, it could not have occurred at a more appropriate moment. I am going to Canada for a couple of weeks, and meanwhile, David Widger will (I hope) address my latest list of errata in the Gutenberg text. I ha...

Re: [POETRY] Milton's Minor Poems - availle

The psalm paraphrases contain a number of significant variants from modern editions, some of which I am sure are errors in scanning, but some may be errors in the edition itself. To resolve doubts, we must ask David Widger to return to the text and compare it with the online version. I do not like t...

Re: [POETRY] Milton's Minor Poems - availle

The problem may be that the text itself is hard to find because its title has not been enlarged and bold-faced. The editor has repaired all the text you have finished, but now we are entering a section I have not told him about. Here is the beginning of the poem, which you can find with the search f...

Re: [POETRY] Milton's Minor Poems - availle

Moving right along! "At a Vacation Exercise" has been uploaded. Milton, known as "The Lady of Christ's [College]," was 18 when he delivered this with his classmates, including (one supposes) a boy named Rivers. By the way, Availle, would you kindly reserve the cover art for me? I never have quite ma...

Re: [POETRY] Milton's Minor Poems - availle

I fixed it. Thanks. The story, by the way, is about a non-traditional student, a very smart and apparently rather rich woman who was a member of the best freshman writing class I ever taught. She was not present at the final exam, so I called her house. The maid (!) answered and said that she could ...

Re: [POETRY] Milton's Minor Poems - availle

Thanks, Betty. I've fixed these now. I see that the next poem is one that caused me to lose a good student early in the course, and that disaster caused me to redesign the course so as never to lose another. Well, here goes. Okay, that is now uploaded too: https://librivox.org/uploads/availle/minorp...

Re: [POETRY] Milton's Minor Poems - availle

Obviously all those late nights of studying Latin paid off more than my dad expected. Yet I'm very glad I switched majors. Comus is uploaded: https://librivox.org/uploads/availle/minorpoems_19_milton_128kb.mp3 . This drama is popularly known as Comus , but as far as we know Milton never called it so...
