Hi Pam,

No worries, that's why I'm here!

Other biographers and critics would do well to follow the advice in his first paragraph about not idolising their subject...

6.35-6.37, p xv fifth line second para
He was entered at Queen’s [heard King’s] College, Oxford…
Wiki says Queen’s as well, so I’m guessing it’s not a printer’s error!

Hi Pam,

Sections 1 and 2 are PL OK. Literary bun fights are as old as time itself!

Hi Erin,

Section 3 is up:

19:26

https://librivox.org/uploads/craigdav1/addison_03_macaulay_128kb.mp3

Boileau had translated "On the Sublime" by Longinus into French and I think this meeting influenced Addison to take the literary sublime to the next level (grandeur, as when we view the pantheon.) You'll remember how Burke expanded it to encompass the safe terror we feel when looking over an alpine precipice, and how Kant elevated the sublime to our sense of the ineffable in contemplating the infinite heavens.

My best,

Pam

Hi Pam,

Section 3 is PL OK. I hadn't thought of that, but you may very well be right!

Hi Erin,

Section 4 is up:

17:18

https://librivox.org/uploads/craigdav1/addison_04_macaulay_128kb.mp3

The famous lines from "The Campaign," which Macaulay thought too familiar to quote:

"So when an Angel by Divine Command
With rising Tempests shakes a guilty Land,
Such as of late o'er pale Britannia past,
Calm and Serene he drives the furious Blast;
And pleas'd th'Almighty's Orders to perform,
Rides in the Whirl-wind, and directs the Storm."

My best,

Pam
