What a Haul

In today's mail, birthday cards and a wedding invitation to boot.

Excuse me, I've got to prepare to turn 25.

RJ:

Hmm.
Have you read the Prelude?

Scott:

The Prelude...hmm. That's not the Eliot one, I'm guessing?

RJ:

Nope, Wordsworth.

Scott:

I have not, would seem. Any good?

RJ:

The joke among the english lit types is to call it the quelude.

Scott:

Heh.

RJ:

Since for most it's boring.
There's a radical 1805 verson, and the official, more sterile (I think) 1850 version.

Scott:
I don't think I've ever read Wordsworth.
I shouldn't be writing this: I've never read a Wordsworth of Wordsworth.
