Writing Time Archive, 2.14.11-8.10.12

2011 
Monday, February 14, 8:45-10:45am: Noodled around with Saiani's edition of John of Garland's Epithalamium beate Marie virginis, wondering whether it is worth trying to revise the translation that I did of the text back in graduate school for publication.
Wednesday, February 16, 8:40-10:40am: Worked on translation of the first 16 lines of John's Prologue.

Monday, February 21, 8:50-11:03 am: Worked on translation of John's Prologue, ll. 16-44.
Wednesday, February 23, 8:20-11:04am: Checked on a translation of certain lines in bk 8 for a colleague; read around a bit in Evelyn Wilson's essays on John; translated John's Prologue, ll. 45-50.
Friday, February 25, 10:00am-12:38pm: Finished translation of John's Prologue, ll. 51-85.  Posted on my other blog.

Monday, February 28, 8:30-10:30am: Worked on translation of John, book I, Summa, ll. 1-32.
Wednesday, March 2, 8:15-10:45am: Worked on translation of John, book I, Summa, ll. 33-64; Notitia, ll. 1-16.  Contacted colleague about possible publication.
Friday, March 4, 8:15-10:30am: Worked on my John of Garland Page, adding references. Looked over the guidelines for publishing a translation for potential series.

Monday, March 7, 6:15-8:05am: Worked on translation of the accessus and introduction to John's first book (Saiani, pp. 255-57); looked for books on envy.
Wednesday, March 9, 8:15-10:45am: Worked on translation of the introduction to John's first book and the prologue to book one (how many introductions can one work have?!)
Wednesday, March 9, 1:30-2:30pm (for Friday, when I'll be at the tournament): Worked on translation of the prologue to Book I, ll. 1-52 .

Wednesday, March 16, 8:45-10:45am: Worked on translation of the first part of Book I, ll. 53-94.
Friday, March 18, 8:10-10:30am: Worked on translation of Book I, ll. 95-145.  50 lines a day seems about as much as I can manage, but it is definitely not poetry.  Do I go for the most literal yet still readable translation or something more interpretative?  The problem is that John means his metaphors, so I don't want to obscure them.

Monday, March 21, 9:20-11:10am: Worked on translation of Book I, ll. 146-195. Feeling like this is going to take forever to finish, hard to keep working at what feels like such a snail's pace. Five weeks and all I have is maybe 400 lines to show for it. Hard because there were so many prefaces before I got to Book I. And the poetry sucks, I know it. Who is ever going to read this text?

Friday, July 22, 9:00ish-11:45ish, 1:15pm-2:45pm: Worked on conference paper.  Reached my goal for word count (and then some), but still another paragraph or two to go.  Who needs a conclusion anyway?
Saturday, July 23, 9:00ish-11:10am: Worked on conference paper.  Finished!  (Well, the text.  The footnotes still need a lot of work.)  6,039 words.  Almost exactly right for an hour's presentation.  Now I just need to make the handout.
