A neat quote, however I would settle for notion of thought at 14:45 of a Saturday afternoon. I have started this already because I have kicked Postmodernism to the kerb for a while. I can't afford to stare blankly at a screen for too long, when I could be doing something that I understand and leave that bloody subject for last. I even nostagically yearn for Bluebeard (due to start again in a week or so).
Problem is, I am not sure what indeed Barbauld contributed to the Romantic movements - some stunning poetry, yes and the fact she was a teacher for a long time (an interesting feat back in the late 18th c to early 19th c). Is there anything else that I could possibly wax lyrical about alongside a couple of lovely poems (I especially love her 'Beauty of Insects' one)?
I have turned off all forum activity and am back to Classic Fm and White Noise. I maybe gone for some time.
Well, I havve managed to get this up to 1,356 words from a mere 569, so I am on the right track. Tomorrow, I will expand re the Autumn poem, then move onto the Beauty of Insects
