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.

Process

John Montague

The structure of process,

time's gullet devouring

parents whose children

are swallowed in turn,

families, houses, towns,

built or battered down,

only the earth and sky

unchanging in change,

everything else fragile

as a wild bird's wing;

bulldozer and butterfly,

dogrose and snowflake

climb the unending stair

into God's golden eye.

Each close in his own

world of sense & memory,

races, nations locked

in their dream of history,

only love or friendship,

an absorbing discipline

(the healing harmony

of music, painting, poem)

as swaying ropeladders

across fuming oblivion

while the globe turns,

and the stars turn,

and the great circles shine,

gold & silver,

sun & moon.
