"ET IN ARCADIA EGO"

"We shed as we pick up, like travelers who must carry everything in their arms, and what we let fall will be picked up by those behind.  The procession is very long and life is very short.  We die on the march.  But there is nothing outside the march so nothing can be lost to it."

--Tom Stoppard (Septimus, Arcadia, p. 38)

 

Lord Byron in Arcadia

George Gordon  aka Lord Byron

Although Lord Byron (1788-1824)  never appears in  Arcadia, much of the plot revolves around him and gossip concerning him. During his short life Byron pursued love, fame, and adventure, became continually enmeshed in sexual and literary scandal, assisted a revolution in Greece (where he died of fever at thirty-six), and, along the way, became one of the major poets of his time.
 

 

"About suffering, they were never wrong

the old masters.  How well they understood"

 

Is it Plautus or is it Lightning?

In Flanders Fields
By: Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, MD (1872-1918)
Canadian Army

IN FLANDERS FIELDS the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

Arcadia 

Today's Allusion:

Don Quixote/quixotic/tilting at windmills

Today's Quote of the Day:

Let Be!

"I wanted a perfect ending . . . Now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end.  Life is about NOT knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next--DELICIOUS AMBIGUITY!"  -- Gilda Radner

"A man who makes trouble for others is also making trouble for himself."

-- Chinua Achebe

 

Today's FORGOTTEN ENGLISH

Words of the Day:

Pomander

A ball, or other form, composed of or filled with perfumes, worn in the pocket or about the neck.

--Robert Nare’s Glossary of the Works of English Authors

knocking up

One of the curious ways of earning a livelihood in the manufacturing towns.  The “knocker  up” wakes the different hands of a mill who cannot wake themselves, so that they can get to their work in time, and not be fined for being too late.  The general pay of the knocker up is twopence a head, per week.  I remember once a witness, being asked what he was, answering, “A knocker up,” deeming it, eventually, as much a trade as a tailor or a banker.

--Edgerton Leigh’s Dialect of Cheshire, 1877

Words of the Day!

locutorium This was a place in the monasteries where the monks [who otherwise maintained verbal silence] met and talked together among themselves, from whence we call such a place in our houses a parlour.  They had another room which they called locutorium forinsecum, where they might talk with lay-men.

--Thomas Blount’s Law Dictionary and Glossary, 1717

high-jinks  Formerly in Scotland, boisterous and hilarious merriment, in which the dice were thrown to determine the person on whom some ludicrous penalty should be imposed, or should be called upon to empty his cup of liquor.

--Reverend James Stormonth’s Dictionary of the English Language¸1884

An obsolete drinking game; drinking by lot.

--Alexander Warrack’s Scots Dialectic Dictionary, 1911
