Reading Aloud

An Exercise in Slowing Down--Paradise Lost in 12 hours

That sounds like speeding up to me.


  1. Steven,

    Going through PL in 12 hours may be fast but having to sit quietly and listen to someone reading poetry for 12 hours certainly seems like slowing down to me.

  2. Dear Fred,

    Yes, I can see that. But given that the last time I read the complete thing, I spent six weeks doing it--12 hours seems like a dream. Or perhaps the appropriate term here would be nightmare.
