Translation Variations

French version: 6:54-7:34
À force de se dire à lui-même, à propos de ses ennemis, que le calme était la mort, et qu'à celui qui veut punir cruellement il faut d'autres moyens que la mort, il tomba dans l'immobilité morne des idées de suicide; malheur à celui qui, sur la pente du malheur, s'arrête à ces sombres idées! C'est une de ces mers mortes qui s'étendent comme l'azur des flots purs, mais dans lesquelles le nageur sent de plus en plus s'engluer ses pieds dans une vase bitumineuse qui l'attire à elle, l'aspire, l'engloutit. Une fois pris ainsi, si le secours divin ne vient point à son aide, tout est fini, et chaque effort qu'il tente l'enfonce plus avant dans la mort.

Public Domain version:
By dint of constantly dwelling on the idea that tranquillity was death, and if punishment were the end in view other tortures than death must be invented, he began to reflect on suicide. Unhappy he, who, on the brink of misfortune, broods over ideas like these!

Before him is a dead sea that stretches in azure calm before the eye; but he who unwarily ventures within its embrace finds himself struggling with a monster that would drag him down to perdition. Once thus ensnared, unless the protecting hand of God snatch him thence, all is over, and his struggles but tend to hasten his destruction. This state of mental anguish is, however, less terrible than the sufferings that precede or the punishment that possibly will follow. There is a sort of consolation at the contemplation of the yawning abyss, at the bottom of which lie darkness and obscurity.

Robin Buss' translation (1996, 2003):
…eventually he fell into the melancholy quietude of thoughts of suicide. Woe to the man who, sliding into misfortune, is drawn by such dark thoughts! This is one of those dead seas that seem to offer the inviting blue of pure waters, but where the swimmer’s feet are sucked into a bituminous mire which draws him, drags him down and swallows him up. Once caught, he is lost if God does not come to his aid, and every effort that he makes pulls him nearer to death. - The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas ROBIN BUSS

• Bituminous Bitumen - a black viscous mixture of hydrocarbons obtained naturally or as a residue from petroleum distillation. It is used for road surfacing and roofing.

Last night 406 processed using the wrong file. However @PAKnitWits got me on Twitter pretty much right away. 

It took some doing to get the feed to reset, but the file IS correct now. It may require deleting, restarting, or nudging, but the file is, indeed, there.

So sorry about that, and enjoy chapter six!!!

Until next week,

Intro to The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandré Dumas

| Crafty Bits|

• Nada this week

| Book Talk - right away |

Paris Map & for the over-achievers: Château d'If map.


Dumas' family tree quote: "My father was a mulatto, my grandfather was a Negro, and my great-grandfather a monkey. You see, Sir, my family starts where yours ends." 

• And for those of you lucky enough to read French:“Mon père était un mulâtre, mon grand-père était un nègre et mon arrière grand-père un singe. Vous voyez, Monsieur: ma famille commence où la vôtre finit.”

David Clarke, our reader!

Buon Giorno Coffee

The tragic events of last Friday (all of them) put me in mind of a few things and I decided to make a little video for you. NO idea how long this will last what with me borrowing a film clip—for educational purposes—so watch it while you can!

Have friend you've been trying to explain CraftLit to? This may be a decent introduction to what we do every week. Feel free to share!

• The audiobook of Wolf Hall is second only to Bleak House (the Audible version read by a female/male duo), IMHO.


Austen's Henry VIII quote: *"The Crimes & Cruelties of [Henry VIII], were too numerous to be mentioned, (as this history I trust has fully shewn;) & nothing can be said in his vindication, but that his abolishing Religious Houses & leaving them to the ruinous depredations of time has been of infinite use to the landscape of England in general, which probably was a principal motive for his doing it, since otherwise why should a Man who was of no Religion himself be at so much trouble to abolish one which had for ages been established in the Kingdom."
Walden Witch House, (I remembered some of the story correctly.)

  • and the Fin Fun site (with videos)

  • Michelle's "moon" section from Herland, chapter 4:

    We reconnoitered as widely as we could in the failing moonlight-- moons are of a painfully unreliable nature; but the growing dawn showed us the familiar shape, shrouded in some heavy cloth like canvas, and no slightest sign of any watchman near. We decided to make a quick dash as soon as the light was strong enough for accurate work.

A Christmas Carol -03- Charles Dickens - Audiobooks with Benefits

A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens—Stave the Fourth, Stave the Fifth

Dickens of a Christmas

Music used in this Audiobook with Benefits compiled from

  • "Carol of the Bells" from Community Audio Internet Archive
  • Holiday Brass Ensemble, Nemesis, 12 Days of Christmas, and The First Noel all from the YouTube Music Library

Subscribe at iTunes--> New? Find out how to get all the audiobooks-with-benefits--> Dickens of a Christmas Blog Hop (from 2010, but still excellent recipe links!)


 

From the text:

...and Bob served it out with beaming looks, while the chestnuts on the fire sputtered and crackled noisily. Then Bob proposed: "A Merry Christmas to us all, my dears. God bless us!" Which all the family re-echoed.

"God bless us every one!" said Tiny Tim, the last of all.

In the 2010 holiday season a group of us hosted a Dickens of a Christmas blog hop:

There are recipes for the traditional foods Dickens wrote of in A Christmas Carol, or recipes that would have been found in Victorian England around the holidays. There were giveaways (sorry, finished), themed knitting patterns and quite possibly hats! There may have been smoking bishop and suet cooked in organs. And there was certainly much making of merry.

We hope you enjoy this as much as we know we did! And we hope that you have a DICKENS OF A CHRISTMAS!

More are coming but haven't been released as of the uploading of the podcast.
Please buy the album. The man is a flippin' musical genius because half of what makes his parodies work is that they sound SO MUCH like the original ("Grapefruit Diet" and "Yoda" being two that come to mind right away). Plus, I think any of you who have worked in a cubicle will get a kick out of his new song "Mission Statement".

Nanette's Book Raffles

You may recall last Fall when Nanette the Nanny came to my rescue and did All The Work to ship out all of my pre-orders of Grounded.

Well, now she needs a hand, too.

To help her out, CraftLit, Vanessa at Survival Organs, and the MamaO Knits Too Much site are helping Nanette raffle off eight Lots of books-and-bags to raise money for a (surprise!!! and) suddenly necessary move.

Details on how to bid and win will post at MamaO Knits and via the CraftLit newsletter over the weekend.

We'll start with Lot 1 on Monday, June 23rd and work our way through all eight Lots by Friday, June 27th, 2014.

All of Nanette's books are gently used and some are Very-Hard-To-Find-Out-Of-Print-Books!

Take a look below and see which ones float your boat. Dates for when each lot will become available are listed below.
