Sound

Trying out metrical reading on A Sound Blog. The stuff I find I really want to read is not BV at all (yay for anapests and Annabel Lee and The Destruction of Sennacherib!) so here’s a compromise – Marvell (in IT, thanks, Harry), because Marvell is mostly fun (he’s the one with the lady raving over entrails in a cave. With horrid care, no less.)

I’m mulling over a passage in heroic couplets (thanks, Harry) – from Pope’s Essay on Criticism – that I may record and put up later. Or not.  

I have to say that some of that old BV stuff (Milton, Keats, Shelley, anyone?) is seriously unenthralling. At the moment.

    The Marvell isn’t in IP and Pope’s Essay On Criticism isn’t in blank verse. I know, pedantic of me, but these things do make a difference.

  2. Harry! So cool to see you here. Many thanks for the corrections — much appreciate the input.

    Please do read Annabel Lee if you ever have the whim again.

  4. You’re asking for it!!

    I am! It’s one of my very favorite poems and I’d love to hear you read it.
