". . . little shall I grace my cause

In speaking for myself. Yet, by your gracious patience,

I will a round unvarnish'd tale deliver . . ."

(William Shakespeare's Othello, I.iii.88-90)

Of Style and Substance

A few days ago I was gifted with this sparkly, fancy thing:




(I know--I hate verbification as much as the next grammar girl, but please, work with me here . . . I'm trying to live up to my new stylish image!)

Anyway, thanks to The Shurt'ugal's Post for this honorific honor! As with most awards of a bloggy nature, this one comes with a string attached: I am to pass it on to another of stylish bent. For a few days I wracked my brain trying to pick just the right recipient. Luckily for me (and my brain), today I stumbled on the perfect candidate. "Stylish" does not begin to adequately describe this new blog and the promise it holds. The bloggers are three mommy types who are trying to enlarge their minds (BWAHAHAHAHA) by pursuing the classical education they never had. They call their quest "A Classic Case of Madness." Please pay them a visit. I think if you do you'll be hooked.

WOW! Cheryl - thanks for the compliment on our very new blog. And it means so much more coming from you, someone I look up to in the area of English. Hope you can comment once in a while and raise our collective knowledge on these books.

Jeannette, I have never read Don Quixote, although I saw Man of La Mancha--does that count? I'm toying with the idea of trying to catch up and read along with you, but that may be an impossible dream. At any rate, I will definitely follow your progress and vicariously enjoy the ride! I am doing so already!

". . . but that may be an impossible dream." Funny stuff.
