1. Happy birthday
2. Hi ,

Well, I'm not going to lead the discussion, but I do have read the story about 20 times now So I am planning on being a pretty involved participant . I even started drawing a map of the cottages Not that I am getting very far with it, as there is no north/south/west/east description in the story

As for the math-problem. I tried solving it that way, but I have the problem that I can only make 2 quotations (I forgot to mention there's also a mother in the problem), while there are 3 unknows. I'll PM you the problem and how I tried to solve it.

Take care and have fun reading the story

3. Hi ,
Looking forward to the discussion on England, My England

I saw your avatar and I wondered: do you know a bit about math? For I've got a mathematical problem which I can not solve. It is the standard "how old are the people in this story"-problem. Meaning: Tommy's age isn't given, Dad is told to be twice as old, together the family is X years old, how old is Tommy. That kind of thing. Do you think you could help me with that?
I know, strange forum to ask that kind of question But because of your avatar, I thought I should try It has really been bugging me today

Greetings, Sapphire
4. Quark, that sounds great. I could see you were doing the old juggling act with several stories at once. If you comment from time to time that would be fine. No pressure and besides it will probably take longer than a month to discuss this one. Glad you had it in your library.
5. Hi Quark! I just posted a new short story in the Lawrence thread. I hope you can participate. Hope all is well with you.
6. There's a really good discussion on J.D. Salinger's short story, "A Perfect Day For A Banana Fish" here: http://www.online-literature.com/for...ad.php?t=54812. And if you don't have the story, there's a link there to read it on line. Maybe you can join in.
7. I apologized in the Turn of the the Screw thread and let me apologize here. I'm sorry Quark, I thought you and Neely were both with the Freudian reading. So sorry.
8. I don't know; I was thinking something very different; perhaps something accessible, and more importantly with far shorter poems.

Just some poets and poems that I think will go well, for their rather expansive nature, but also their accessibility. Let me know if you have any suggestions, as this is going to have to be democratic anyway if it is going to get anywhere.
9. I think the Norton's edition was pretty comprehensive as to this story. I'll look for your reply.
10. Hiya Quark

I finally concluded the critical interpretations of The Turn of the Screw (Remember that? ) and have put together a definitive reading of the story. I think it's conclusive as to whether the ghosts are real or not. I've put together five posts, since it's rather long, all on this page of the thread: http://www.online-literature.com/for...d=1#post915463.

Hope you'll want to satop back and read what I've put together. Feel free to comment.
