February 12, 2006
Took an hour and a half to add the 280 words needed to kill off that stubborn little section concerning Petrarch's ubiquitously allegorical reading of the Eclogues that was the basis for his imitation. I am now officially at the half-way point in the chapter [count is just a shade over 3500] and happy to show Andrew my progress tomorrow. The difficulty is that I am venturing now into unchartered territory; my plan for the latter half of the chapter -- dealing specifically with the Servian elements of the Bucolicum Carmen — is so wishy-washy that I fear it may need a complete revamp before I get going.
Still. Something to do tomorrow.
