Re: The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer (Middle English) dc

Lawyer's Tale done. Injection tomorrow (poke in the eye with a sharp stick) so there may be a hiatus.

Sincerely

Re: Weekly/Fortnightly Poetry Suggestions

This doesn't seem to have been done in this format. Pied Beauty GLORY be to God for dappled things— For skies of couple-colour as a brinded cow; For rose-moles all in stipple upon trout that swim; Fresh-firecoal chestnut-falls; finches’ wings; Landscape plotted and pieced—fold, fallow, and plough; 5...

Something longer this time. Don't know if this will become a trend.

It was "right click, copylink" - how could I forget? Very easily. This one actually is The Prologue. And blessedly short.

Re: The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer (Middle English) dc

Fair point because of the nature of the Tale. No, it's the whole tale - it's just completely unfinished. Stops dead. I remember the Pasolini film had nothing but this guy dancing around and talking at random for a few minutes. I did better than that. But that's it. And now Jordan Peterson is talking...

Re: The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer (Middle English) dc

I'm a little (a lot) out of practice but - I've uploaded the lastest chapter with you as MC and it won't copy (Conrol and C) so I can paste in the forum or anywhere. I get the last copy of some written stuff I did instead. So I really don't know what to do. I'll try uploading again but I doubt it wi...

Re: Modern Russian poetry; an anthology (1921)

What's this about PD anthologies Off Topic? Not that I want to do anything (Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, maybe) but I would like to know.

End of a long knight's journey.

Long day's journey into knight, or what? This one is shorter but to the point. The aggrieved Reev's Tale.

Visitors last weekend. A touch of bawdry now. Might be over that bit of post-flu so we'll see about the next bit of bawdry. Till then keep well.

The Knightes Tale done. (I'm thinking this may take the full ten months.) Now gearing up to be a brute male Miller-type person. (Not Arthur. More Henry.) (Good luck with that.)

Re: The Intersexes by Edward Prime-Stevenson

There's a number of books by Edward Carpenter on this theme in Gutenberg.

E. g. The Intermediate Sex.

Re: The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer (Middle English) dc

Was just planning to retire, recuperating from flu, listening to old sf stories, Kate Wilhelm, Avram Davidson, when I suddenly perked up and recorded this, which was enormous fun. So here is - THE PROLOGUE. Thank you for your time and patience. Will continue as inclination and anemia permit, Sincere...

Re: Jewish Fairy Tales

The whole world isn't listening. I checked on my Librivox catalogue. I'm far more likely to do another version of the rather good translation of Metamorphosis that you recently did - I thought it might do well in a boxed set (I think of it, quite incorrectly, as a portmanteau version) including othe...
