A Modest Plea for More Background in Posts
- In a message dated 3/10/2006 11:19:04 P.M. Eastern Standard Time,
In Birmingham, Sunday afternoon there was a paper by Pedro
titled "The Catholic Adaptation of Myths" lectured by Denis Bridoux
(in former's absence). Final title was slightly different alluding
to a technique 'contrafactura' in stead to a simple 'adaptation'.
It's a good idea for everyone here to make it clearer what you're referring
to in your posts. This post was a reply to one from several days ago, so it
was hard for me to figure out what this was about. I was particularly
confused about what "Birmingham," "Sunday afternoon," and "Pedro" was in reference
to. I was at the Tolkien 2005 conference in Birmingham, England in August
last year, so if this confused me, imagine how confusing it would be to people
who weren't there. And I still don't know who Pedro is.
