The HarperCollins...

Caterina Caterina said: " This seems to be a very good edition of the Bible both from a scholarly perspective and for the language itself. Of the dozen or so translations we have at the house, this is the one I prefer to read from. The only trouble is the binding - it's paper ...more "

"Genesis 27: Rebekah and Jacob trick Isaac with bald-faced (or rather, hairy-faced) lies into blessing Jacob instead of first-born Esau -- now there's a a story for 6000 years of debate! It seems appalling, but maybe the wife and last-born of the patriarch did not want to be stuck with the leftovers. And why attempt to justify it? Jacob's story seems to me a kind of everyman's story, good and bad rolled in together." Jul 06, 2016 06:01AM

Stephen P
Stephen P is on page 100 of 576 of The Weight of Ink: At times stiff and awkward. I liked that. She didn't edit that out but allowed herself to catch up to the story, its intricacies and rhythms.

Virginia Woolf
“Orlando, who had just dipped her pen in the ink, and was about to indite some reflection upon the eternity of all things, was much annoyed to be impeded by a blot, which spread and meandered round her pen. . . . She dipped it again. The blot increased. She tried to go on with what she was saying but no words came. Next she began to decorate the blot with wings and whiskers, till it became a round-headed monster, something between a bat and a wombat. But as for writing poetry with Basket and Bartholemew in the room, it was impossible. No sooner had she said 'impossible' than, to her astonishment and alarm, the pen began to curve and caracole with the smoothest possible fluency. Her page was written in the neatest sloping Italian hand with the most insipid verses she had ever read in her life:

I am myself but a vile link Amid life's weary chain, But I have spoken hallowed words, Oh, do not say in vain!
. . . . .
She was so changed, the soft carnation cloud Once mantling o'er her cheek like that which eve Hangs o'er the sky, glowing with roseate hue, Had faded into paleness, broken by Bright burning blushes, torches of the tomb,

but here, by an abrupt movement she spilt the ink over the page and blotted it from human sight she hoped for ever. She was all of a quiver, all of a stew. Nothing more repulsive could be imagined than to feel the ink flowing thus in cascades of involuntary inspiration.”
Virginia Woolf, Orlando

Anna Świrszczyńska
“Thank You, My Fate

Great humility fills me,
great purity fills me,
I made love with my dear
as if I made love dying
as if I made love praying,
tears pour
over my arms and his arms.
I don't know whether this is joy
or grief, I don't understand
what I feel, I'm crying,
I'm crying, it's humility
as if I were already dead,
gratitude, I thank you, my fate,
I am unworthy, how beautiful
my life.”
Anna Świrszczyńska

Ono no Komachi
“Is this love reality
Or a dream?
I cannot know,
When both reality and dreams
Exist without truly existing.”
