... aaaaand, we’re back.This post marks my second return to this blog project, the first one having been abortive (it ended after just one post, the previous one in this series). There’s good reasons for that: I was focused on some writing projects, and trying to use my time wisely while I had a lot of it. In the time since, a lot has happened: my wife and I moved back to Korea; I found a new job (and it ate a bunch of my time), we had a baby, I learned to drive… and that’s just the stuff fir for public consumption! It’s been a couple of tumultuous years.
But the fact that I have left this project languishing has nagged at me, and the encouragement I’ve gotten from commenters also has helped to light a (slow-burning) fire beneath me, so I’m back at it. I hope to make one post per week during the coming winter holiday and the semester that follows, covering at least one canto per post: that would get me through the remainder of the Chinese Cantos and all of the Adams Cantos. We’ll see whether I get to the Pisan Cantos this summer, or have to put it off till the fall.
