 · Old Styles is Back · So, where have you been, Styles? Well, would it in any way lessen my visage hereabouts if I answered by clarifying whether, like the young-old dude at right, your grizzled logger has been restored over the summer? Hardly! So why try? As even E. B. White says, "Don't explain too much."

But I might say I'm back in form. The summer has taken me and my wife from here to Minnesota and back with regrets only that "Time does fly when you're having fun, and having later remodeling chores at home." Now I'm mindful of still more to come, what with a new school year starting. I heard about "pedagogical models" yesterday and worked today with a past student finishing an incomplete on tort reform (I want to bill by the hour, but I'm only salaried here).

Things aren't as simple as 1, 2, 3, I should say — but what else is new? Maybe Greek style in New York? I found some recently, spiffed up electronically. It's the subject this fall of Dr. Hardy Hansen's new graduate course called Greek Prose Style (Greek 701) for a consortium of classics students from CUNY, Fordham, and NYU. It makes me want to sign up.

Well, too many words, too little time!

But Hardy Hansen maybe knows how to tell that old story in Greek Style.

Do enjoy!


Welcome back to the blog world, Styles. As I perused the Greek site, I found a discussion of loose and periodic styles. Since your last post in June discussed periods, do I assume this one is loose?

Not necessarily. Although it proceeds with what seems to be desultory abandon, it inscribes a point still, one encoded discreetly in my HTML. Hold your cursor over my final link. You'll see Transcendant Periodicity.

Cool! How you do that?

Inside link coding add a title="text" command — remembering that "Why" is more important than "How."
