442: Another Piece of the Puzzle - chapter 56 

Book Talk • 03:36

"And how shall I be dressed?" demanded Andrea.

"Oh, very simply; black trousers, patent leather boots, white waistcoat, either a black or blue coat, and a long cravat. Go to Blin or Veronique for your clothes. Baptistin will tell you where, if you do not know their address. The less pretension there is in your attire, the better will be the effect, as you are a rich man. If you mean to buy any horses, get them of Devedeux, and if you purchase a phaeton, go to Baptiste for it."

(I also loved how "now don't be gauche" the Count is with Andrea here!)

I shamefacedly admit that Justin had to put this puppy together for me again.

The editing software ground to a halt and nearly took the recording with it. So. While we await the prognosis of my sad, sad machine, it is once again Audio Editing Solutions for the win!

Justin,

my hero!

[Book Talk @ 10:19]

Truncated show notes again!

And check out the growing list of fun things to get from the CraftLit gift shop (or the PodShop):

It's the last week of my computer's early death (it's in the shop. If you talk nerd like me: Turns out the Solid State hard drive started to die, took out the fusion drive with it and then, in an epic domino maneuver, took out my graphics card.

That's why by Thursday the only way I could manipulate the computer (like, to turn it off) was to use the assistive keystrokes for the blind.

THAT was a first.

The Genius Bar was stunned to respectful silence.

So.

This is the last week I'm tormenting Justin, my seriously-fun-to-work-with editor at Audio Editing Solutions for taking blobs of audio and make them make sense.

That Justin. WhattaMensch!

Epic computer meltdown right after recording. I'm actually typing these notes on my phone. No idea when I'll have a working machine again (or at least a machine I can trust to keep working). Not exactly in the holiday budget...

So.

All credit to Justin, my awesome editor at Audio Editing Solutions for sweeping in and making an episode out of the big wad of audio.

All hail Justin!

And on that note, I go back to the tech support call that's had me on hold...today.

Translation Variations

French version: 6:54-7:34
À force de se dire à lui-même, à propos de ses ennemis, que le calme était la mort, et qu'à celui qui veut punir cruellement il faut d'autres moyens que la mort, il tomba dans l'immobilité morne des idées de suicide; malheur à celui qui, sur la pente du malheur, s'arrête à ces sombres idées! C'est une de ces mers mortes qui s'étendent comme l'azur des flots purs, mais dans lesquelles le nageur sent de plus en plus s'engluer ses pieds dans une vase bitumineuse qui l'attire à elle, l'aspire, l'engloutit. Une fois pris ainsi, si le secours divin ne vient point à son aide, tout est fini, et chaque effort qu'il tente l'enfonce plus avant dans la mort.

Public Domain version:
By dint of constantly dwelling on the idea that tranquillity was death, and if punishment were the end in view other tortures than death must be invented, he began to reflect on suicide. Unhappy he, who, on the brink of misfortune, broods over ideas like these!

Before him is a dead sea that stretches in azure calm before the eye; but he who unwarily ventures within its embrace finds himself struggling with a monster that would drag him down to perdition. Once thus ensnared, unless the protecting hand of God snatch him thence, all is over, and his struggles but tend to hasten his destruction. This state of mental anguish is, however, less terrible than the sufferings that precede or the punishment that possibly will follow. There is a sort of consolation at the contemplation of the yawning abyss, at the bottom of which lie darkness and obscurity.

Robin Buss' translation (1996, 2003):
…eventually he fell into the melancholy quietude of thoughts of suicide. Woe to the man who, sliding into misfortune, is drawn by such dark thoughts! This is one of those dead seas that seem to offer the inviting blue of pure waters, but where the swimmer’s feet are sucked into a bituminous mire which draws him, drags him down and swallows him up. Once caught, he is lost if God does not come to his aid, and every effort that he makes pulls him nearer to death. - The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas ROBIN BUSS

• Bituminous Bitumen - a black viscous mixture of hydrocarbons obtained naturally or as a residue from petroleum distillation. It is used for road surfacing and roofing.

Intro to The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandré Dumas

| Crafty Bits|

• Nada this week

| Book Talk - right away |

Paris Map & for the over-achievers: Château d'If map.


Dumas' family tree quote: "My father was a mulatto, my grandfather was a Negro, and my great-grandfather a monkey. You see, Sir, my family starts where yours ends." 

• And for those of you lucky enough to read French:“Mon père était un mulâtre, mon grand-père était un nègre et mon arrière grand-père un singe. Vous voyez, Monsieur: ma famille commence où la vôtre finit.”

David Clarke, our reader!

Buon Giorno Coffee
