  1. I have a request… Could you set your RSS feeds to have the full posts? I’ve started using a blog reader (google reader), so I’m getting lazy about actually going to someone’s blog. Apparently, your feed is set to only have the top couple of lines of your posts instead of the whole thing. Thanks!

  2. what is the history of the word “capacious” in Milton’s Paradise Lost, book 9, line 9.603 where did it come from, how is it used and any other information you could give me. Thanks so much.
