Radcliffe Camera reminds me of the National Archives and , yes, I want to sit at the table where the Inklings conversed.
Beautiful photos and eloquent thoughts and verbiage.
Thank you for the update. I am so envious.

How exciting that you taught the Divine Comedy! It was really fascinating to compare the different English translations and see how they approached it: One was much more literal, the other easier to understand. We’ll talk more about translations next term.

Thank you so much, and all the best to you!

Thank you, Rachel! It was wonderful to get outside, I was practically giddy to be in the sunshine again.

Oh, yes, it’s very beautiful! We read only a few cantos, too bad! Most of the reading is more focused on critical theory.

Mr. Sleete, this really made me laugh and brightened my day – thank you so much for the kind words and well wishes! COVID restrictions have prevented me from visiting Magdalen, but a friend at Merton did show me the table where he and Tolkien used to chat!

I’m studying Comparative Literature and Critical Translation – for me, that means African literature in Spanish and English. Hope you and your family are doing well, it’s always so good to hear from you!

Thank you so much, Mr. Pete, for your kindness and hospitality – our visits were some of the highlights of my summer back in the USA! May God bless you as well!

As soon as the quarantine restrictions lift, let’s talk about plane tickets!
