Dypak - I thought I had commented on Vimes here a few months ago when we “came out of the closet” to explain Discworld to Justin! I note that the “reformed vampire” in the current arc is very Discworldy too!
It’s been a long time since I read “Billy Budd.” I don’t recall how difficult it was - though I don’t usually persevere very hard! Poems – I like what I’ve read of Whitman, and Magee’s “High Flight” (another Canadian!) can’t think of any other military poets I know off hand.
Better quit before we bore the neighbors!
