Section 6, The Drama, is PL OK.

Oh my, what drama indeed! Talk about a guilt trip -- and if one wasn't enough, let's add "like mother, like daughter"! Sheesh.

I am liking the old priest. He's a wise one.

PL Notes Section 8

Neat ending! What a story, and well told. Just 3 notes:

:35 what the Indians told me, you say Indian
4:17 odor-iforous foliage, you say o-diforous.
4:40 perfumed by the bee, bee is missing

Why is the introduction listed as the last section? Shouldn't it be Section 0?

Because it is boring and we thought of leaving it off altogether. But then, after the story, it could be interesting to some people. I often skip reading the Introductions on books or leave them to read later.

OK. You may want to include a note about that in the summary, so we don't get error reports saying the sections are out of order. ;)

I did . . . "and this early (somewhat autobiographical) novella was inspired by his years spent with the local Indian tribes, (described in his Introduction--included after the story)."

That's okay. IMHO, why some authors bog down their really charming stories with really tedious introductions explaining "who I am and why I wrote this story and who is my target audience", I can't understand. Lots of introductions would be better as afterwords.

PL Notes Section 9

1:37 But the master mind ever asserts its power, you say never. Maybe you can just nip the n off of the word!
3:29 which cul-mi-nated in, you say cult-i-mated

Thank you for the thoughtful PLing.
I'll make the necessary changes to the 3 section with PL notes and turn them in later.

If Rene could be found in English, I'd be glad to take a look at it.

8 and 9 are PL OK. That's all for the recording part.

Bill, what keywords do you suggest, and please review the summary. The cover is ready.

Once these are checked/fixed, this project will be ready to catalog. :clap:

Novella's are fun. I hope you will consider reading Rene. I can BC/DPL that one for you, too.

24 hours ago I would not have supplied a positive answer to a Rene project, but today I am re-energized. I'll check on the English version I found.

I'll work on the Summary text, too.
