Next year, we'll be in the decade that marks the centennial of the Jazz Age. Sit with that. Then, as Minnie Riperton sang, "close your eyes and remember." We don't remember that age. We weren't here yet. But we DID know those shaped by it. A terrible era, but oh, that music.

Going to sleep hearing the tide beating on the shore has to be one of life's greatest pleasures.

Of COURSE white people in the 18th century were capable of knowing that slavery is bad. How else can one account for the abolitionist movement?

“In solitude, the imagination bodies forth its conceptions unrestrained, and stops enraptured to adore the beings of its own creation. These are moments of bliss; and the memory recalls them with delight.” - Mary Wollstonecraft

It's usually w a bit of surprise in American English - like u didn't expect it to be *so* something or it is that thing to an unusual degree. Like "I thought this think was going to be just ok but it was actually charming " and, "That is quite charming" kinda mean the same thing

Well, this has been quite instructive. Seems Brits used to use "quite" the same way as Americans (and still do sometimes, eg "quite right.") But over time we changed ours to mean "mildly" and now Americans think we're more enthusiastic than you'll ever find a Brit being 🤷‍♀️

I love how Millay’s poems are always the ones to strike a mass chord, above all poets I tweet. That speaks to her power, and she deserves more limelight in literary studies. Please consider suporting her home/museum, Steepletop, which had to close in ‘18 but is trying to reopen.

Sometimes to amuse myself, I think up ridiculous scenarios in which there is Austen Universe crossover. Like, there's a party in London and Darcy and Bingley and Mr. Elliot, the younger, are all there and Darcy kind of hates him but Bingley is charmed.

In a terrifying foreshadowing of , please behold William Blake's illustration for Thomas Gray's "Ode on the Death of a Favourite Cat," from between 1797 and 1798.
