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...

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

The next installment, https://librivox.org/uploads/availle/minorpoems_18_milton_128kb.mp3 , has been uploaded. Thanks for your diligence, Betty. You may notice one added word. The text reads thus: “I hasten as you do to Florence, or Siena, the rather tell you a short story from the interest you have...

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

I've PL'ed section 1 of the front matter the preface) and there's one spot that may need redoing: At 20:07 heard “390” in “ so carefully revised, that only one fault (Paradise Regain'd, ii. 309) was left for correction later. I've fixed this now. I also regularized the openings and closings, and I ...

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

Betty, I have added two files at the beginning of the collection consisting of the prefatory material that precedes the poems. Some of it is prickly with issues of spelling that must be clarified in speech for the listener. It will take patience to listen to; imagine the patience it took to record a...
