Literary Lyric (Beyond This Life)
« on: April 11, 2020, 06:23:05 PM »
So I’ve been reading through George Eliot’s “Middlemarch” during the last few weeks and came across these lines today.  I guess JP has a taste for classic literature...

Wow!
It sounds like, "ruk, ruk, ruk, ruk, ruk." Instead of the more pleasing kick drum sound of, "gzarruk, gzarruk, gzarruk, gzarruk."

I'm honestly surprised it's not acknowledged more than it is. I found that exact quote on a park bench in my home city, some years after hearing Beyond This Life. I was blown away.

Wow, that's pretty cool.  I mean I know this is a "classic" novel, but it's so monstrous and this is just two lines buried in a 900 page book, and I feel like it's one of those classics that isn't read too often just because of how daunting it is.  I certainly never knew about this quote myself until I read it in the book yesterday.
