I agree, Hardy is really a great poetry writer :9: it's a wonder he became more famous for his novels.

And here is my last for this month, a shorty by Anonymous:

Hello Rapunzelina,

I have a scary batch for Halloween! In a couple of places there are typos, but I've read what I think made the most sense. I'm sorry these are all long this month!

'The White Woman' by John Stagg (1770-1823)
Text: https://archive.org/details/minstrelofnortho00stagrich (p. 118)
Duration: 6.35

'The Vampyre' by John Stagg (1770-1823)
Text: https://archive.org/details/minstrelofnortho00stagrich (p. 228)
Duration: 13.30
MP3: https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/spc173_vampyre_el_128kb.mp3


This author is new to the catalogue (I'm hitting you with a lot in one month - I'm sorry!). His Wikipedia page is at:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Stagg_(poet)

To summarise his entry: John Stagg was a Cumberland poet known as the 'blind bard'. His wrote dialect poems and gothic narrative verse and is best known for 'The Vampyre'.

Thank you, Sonia and Erin!
Erin, I don't understand why you're sorry for offering us a longer duration of listening pleasure and for enriching the author collection! :9:

Rapunzelina,

You're very kind! You juggle lots of projects, so I'm trying not to give you a lot to listen to *and* new authors to add to the database *and* do it late in the month. If everybody did that you'd never finish cataloguing each collection. You're a volunteer just like everybody else, so I'd rather not give you loads of time-consuming stuff all at once!
