Re: [Solo Biography] "Sir Francis Drake" by Julian Corbett - dc

Hi Pam,

22 and 23 are PL OK. This has been zooming along! I've just looked up and seen there's only one more chapter to go!

Re: SOLO - Six lectures on literature by C.H. Herford-ans

I think you're right, and many of the classically educated found solace in Roman or Greek authors when their own world was at war. Thank you for recording this. I have a paper in which Lucretius features, but it suffered the all too common fate of being shoved in a desk drawer 'to be revised and sub...

Re: [Solo Biography] "Sir Francis Drake" by Julian Corbett - dc

Howdy Pam,

One note for 22. It's a small omission at 10.26, in the bottom third of page 177:
...and volunteers flocked to Plymouth. [His force was soon doubled,] but as ill-luck would have it...

I still think he's being rather harsh on Elizabeth!

Re: [SOLO] The Cathedral by J-K Huysmans - philc

Section 14 is PL OK. I'm going to mention something that seems to be slipping in here and there. It isn't distracting and it isn't full-blooded plosives, but I'm operating on the assumption that it's better to mention it now when it isn't an issue. I've marked a couple of places -19.30 magpie -28.06...

Re: SOLO - Six lectures on literature by C.H. Herford-ans

Section 06 is spot PL OK! I'm trying to tie off loose ends, too, though in my case futile attempt or forlorn hope is probably more the order of the day. I'm looking forward to hearing your other two lectures, though! And yeah, lit crit does kind of go along at its own pace in its own little world so...

Re: SOLO - Six lectures on literature by C.H. Herford-ans

Boy, I dunno. Listening to it today it's clearly 'lecture 6', so I have no idea what I was hearing last night. Sorry about that! Carry on, and I'll try to sort my ears out in the meantime!

Re: SOLO - Six lectures on literature by C.H. Herford-ans

Ha! For those I usually try Forvo. Most of the time, I still have to remind myself that it's better to have a badly pronounced version than none at all! Although if you had gone for the Norwegian I would have happily gone along with it, since my Norwegian is on a part with my Welsh, and you've just ...

Re: [Solo Biography] "Sir Francis Drake" by Julian Corbett - dc

Hi Pam,

Section 20 is PL OK. I've been waiting for this for a while. Corbett makes everything so gripping that I didn't know how he was going to write about this - wow.
