Interesting article! Thank You for posting.

I, too, have reservations about publishing a work with which the author was dissatisfied.

Chopin wrote 20 Nocturnes, but most collections (including that of Arther Rubinstein), only have 19. This is because Chopin really didn’t like the twentieth, and refused to publish it.

Every once in a while I see a recording that has all twenty. Even if WE like the twentieth, because, after all, it IS Chopin, I think it is better to respect the composer’s wishes.

Just my humble opinion, but I’m just a bass-playin’,Harley Ridin’ FReeper gal, so what do I know? LOL.

Michael Crichton wrote “Eaters of the Dead” as proof that a modern version of Beowulf could be popular. He won a friendly bet on the subject. “The Thirteenth Warrior” was the movie version.

HEY! You didn't say spoiler alert.

From its first word — “Lo!” — to the death of the dragon and Beowulf

Benjamin Bagby’s reading of the first part of Beowulf (in Old English) is excellent.
