Hay Festival

Benedict at least engages in digital festival, when you can´t have any real festivals right now:

It´s a book event. Seems very nice, I think.


I cannot live without brainwork. What else is there to live for? Stand at the window there. Was there ever such a dreary, dismal, unprofitable world? See how the yellow fog swirls down the street and drifts across the dun-coloured houses. What could be more hopelessly prosaic and material? What is the use of having powers, Doctor, when one has no field upon which to exert them?

Re: Hay Festival

Looks like an interesting festival. The event Benedict is a part of with Margaret Atwood, Stephen Fry, and others looks interesting. I don't know a lot of Wordsworth poetry (just a bit from a Romantic poetry class I took in undergrad), but it could be interesting to hear the poems out loud. I think I remember going to a poetry reading of "We Are Seven," or a poem that referenced it.

There's another event on another day that looks very interesting, but if all the times for these events are in UK time, it means that it starts at 6:30 am here, so I guess I will have to miss out.
