Things are becoming Tripartite (three interrelated pieces) πŸ˜Ά

I want to “freeze” the Grand Bibliography soon. I only have 249 more old emails to process (presently back to 11 January 2018). The Grand Bibliography is currently 2234 sources. Manuscript is 1291 pages.

I am also continuing to find physical and/or digital versions of some few Arthurian “source texts” that I am missing (dating up to AD 1635). I do include sources from after that date, but they are considered “nonMediΓ¦val Arthurian source texts”, or rather “non-core texts”. By the mid-1600s, true modern fiction had begun to emerge. That is why “the time of Shakespeare” (+/-) is my “cut-off” for “core texts”.

I am also going through the physical copies of all of my Arthuriana-based books and cataloguing their content based on the 30 topic areas across the sixteen volumes of the project. Those areas are Logres, Arthur, Guinevere, Perceval, Galahad, Grail, Merlin, Morgan, Mordred, Avalon, Gawain, Round Table, Knights, Lancelot, Lady of the Lake, Tristan, Isolde, Camelot, Excalibur, Cornwall, Wales, France, Angles, Saxons, Jutes, Frisians, Romans, Picts, Scots, and the Irish. πŸ˜€

Those are presently the three major “tasks-at-hand”. I feel that they are reasonable and interrelated. This project has indeed become a true Magnum Opus. 😱😁😢

Tomorrow (Monday) is another work day. So until then, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎

On to the next phase

Total of 995 pages, with a Notes section of 699 citations referencing 146 sources. My next phase will be rearranging some content throughout the manuscript. After that, I will be re-checking all of my citation references.

Then I will go back to my original nine texts from my 1985 paper “King Arthur”. I will revisit those sources to expand the manuscript in a way to extend the original feel of the paper onto the Introduction volume, thereby given the same feel to the overall set of 16 books.

Tomorrow, some rearranging of information. πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€

Accomplished some.

Stopped on page 775 out of 1010. Tomorrow will be more of same. Still working on checking original citations from my 1985 paper “King Arthur”. Will be nice to expand things overall from my original nine sources (presently citing from 146 sources). Sleep well. πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€

Strange day indeed.

Accomplished a variety of tasks. Did get to page 755 out of 1023. So things are slowly condensing. Always discovering new things every day. Was it Lucius Artorius Castus or Artorius Iustus? Was he in the 2nd or 3rd century AD? Personally, I will list them both, with independent evidence from different sources. The overall goal is to leave the conclusions to the readers. More fun happening tomorrow, true believers. πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€
