To describe the book to be published in the next two months:
- The title of the book is Hexameter in Story and Verse.
- For the book, I have written or transcribed five stories of considerable length for children into Hexameter. Children’s stories in Hexameter have been literally non-existent. Evangeline by Longfellow has been about the only one relatively suitable for class 5 when it is given. Many paintings are to be seen in my children’s stories.
- The old Masters, Homer Goethe, Longfellow, Yeats and Kingsley are in the second section.
- Poetry and poetry in translation is also present, several of which I have done including the Metamorphoses of Plant and Animal by Goethe
- Then there’s a section of essays about Speech and Drama and Anthroposophical Therapy.
- Interspersed in the whole book are my paintings.
An estimation of the total cost is $4,500 with fomatting and self-publishing. I am asking for $500 from the Macpherson Trust.
I joined the Anthroposophical Society in 1976 and the First Class in 1986. I am committed in life and work to Anthroposophy.
