Vox Audita Perrit, Literra Scripta Manet....
The heard word is lost, the written letter remains...
Going to send drafts for chapters three and four tomorrow to Rick. Then it's onto chapter five- narratives featuring female martyrs (case studies will be Perpetua and Felicitas, possibly Paul's companion Thecla and Blandina, one of the martyrs of Lyon). By mid-June, I will have drafts for all the chapters, and the second semester will likely be spent on further drafting and writing the intro, conclusion, history of scholarship and methodology sections. Sincerely hoping that five months is sufficient time in which to accomplish all this. ;p

For lack of anything else decent on, I'm watching ye olde 1996 tv adaptation of Emma on the ABC. I saw this maybe a couple of years ago on cable, but I didn't notice at the time that Ray Coulthard (James in Hotel Babylon) was in it! He hasn't changed a bit either, looks-wise.

rickysbaby posted about Bloomsday coming up in a few weeks. Last year I decided that I was going to celebrate it and read Ulysses for it this year. Somewhat daunted by the fact that my Penguin Classics edition is nearly 1000 pages, but I could plausibly read the whole thing in a day. Possibly? Encouragement welcomed from any on the flist who have read and finished the book please!

Current Mood: calm calm

1000 pages?? Now I am beginning to doubt that I have a copy of it. I have several (as yet unread) Joyce works, but I think I would remember one of that magnitude. . .

I think I might try to read it, but I know that no 1000-page complicated antiquity will be read (by me) before Bloomsday this year. Damn.

Oh well, life is about challenges, no??
