Tag Archives: 18th century

May 3rd “Written on the Page”

As I’ve stated before, I listen to a book on CD every day driving up and down the mountain and/or I put a book in my iPod and listen to it all day.  Today I started On the Road by Jack Kerouac which kept me transported to 1948 Americana while I was recycling.  Anyway, last week I listened to Dumas’s The Man in the Iron Mask,  the writing style is exceptional.    I was an english major that focused on that era specifically.

That’s probably what inspired todays song, which is taking some of the haughty sentence structure of 18th century french nobility.  Or something like that.
