Within the last two years, I reread Beowulf for the first time since high school (1940's, yeah, I'm really old...). I struggled through a translation bought from B&N catalog store in NY and managed to understand most of the old original.

I would enjoy reading it again and talking about it. My thoughts might not be as educated or well based as many others but I do have a thick skin and some find it exciting to beat me about my old grey head. :):)

I would also enjoy seeing a reading and commentary on some of the bawdy ballads of the English language. I have a copy of ENGLISH AND SCOTTISH POPULAR BALLADS, edited by Helen Child Sargent and George Lyman Kittredge (copyright 1904) that has some pretty good, but moderately little known ballads in it. I recently wrote and published an anthology, IMMORAL BALLADS OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE, and if any are interested in samples I can refer you to another site or send you samples by e-mail. Just let me know....

byeee y'all!!!
