Hello again, cobblers!
Today is a double day in literary history: not only was Walden published in 1854, but in 1631 John Dryden was born. This, of course, is only his birthday in Old Style Dates. If we adjust the dates, his birthday is now August 19th, but I’m choosing to use the original date because I don’t feel that I’m entitled to take away anyone’s birthday ;).
If you’re new to Dryden or need a refresher on his work, click on his wiki link above (his name). Then head over to the Poetry Foundation to check out some of his work.
Until tomorrow, read on.
