Craig,

Thanks. Try this.

Tone changed a bit, so you can tell it is an edit. I am still learning the ropes, and not entirely sure on editing. Is it too obvious?

Chris
Sounded good to me also.

Thanks Josh :D

A nice mixure of prose and poetry.

Well read. Only a few minor errors noted.

18:04-1820 This “ease” or naturalness, in a literary style, it has long been the fashion to regard as ease in appearance alone—as a point of really difficult attainment. Repetition here

33:08 Fresh as the first beam glittering on a sail, (you read soil) at least that's what I heard
That brings our friends up from the underworld,
Sad as the last which reddens over one
That sinks with all we love below the verge;
So sad, so fresh, the days that are no more.

34:50-35:16 We shall reach, however, more immediately a distinct conception of what the true Poetry is, by mere reference to a few of the simple elements which induce in the Poet himself the poetical - Repetition here

The Present Moment (Introduction)
by Soren Kierkegaard translated by Hollander

Craig
Hi Craig,

Thanks for continuing to record the works of Kierkegaard for the SNF. :) This was, for me, one of the most interesting short selections from Kierkegaard's writings that I have PL'd for you. His description of what it is like to put aside pleasant daydreaming and confront the "down and dirty" of daily life is classic!

"And now that I am to work in the present moment I find that there will be not a few persons whom I must oblige by paying my respects to all the insignificant things which mediocrity with great self-importance will lecture about..."


PL OK! :thumbs:

Thanks Sue. I was thinking of opening the whole book up for a project but have read so much in that it might be too much. Short doses of Kierkegaard seem best to me.
