PEP-Web Tip of the Day

When you hover your mouse over a paragraph of the Standard Edition (SE) long enough, the corresponding text from Gesammelte Werke slides from the bottom of the PEP-Web window, and vice versa.

If the slide up window bothers you, you can turn it off by checking the box “Turn off Translations” in the slide-up. But if you’ve turned it off, how do you turn it back on? The option to turn off the translations only is effective for the current session (it uses a stored cookie in your browser). So the easiest way to turn it back on again is to close your browser (all open windows), and reopen it.

For the complete list of tips, see PEP-Web Tips on the PEP-Web support page.

Emotional Emporia

Pete O'Riordan

I have learnt to savour the taste of nice feelings

just as I have learnt to recognise the clay which is death,

it's mineral hue and flint hearts, sorrow and regretful pain.

But the nice bubbles, I hold on my tongue and slurp them as if tasting

champagne instead of




even unpleasurable sensations like bitter.

Cold can become like ice-cream—and flavours and smells are the drugs.

Vanilla freedom.

Knicker bocker glorious

Emporia phantasmagoria.
