Hector Berlioz -King Lear - Overture
I came upon this about pronouncing his name: "In Berlioz's first name, the "H" is silent, and the accent is on the second syllable; speakers of English might spell it phonetically as "eck-TORE." In the second name, the "Z" is not silent, and the accent is on the final syllable -- as though it were spelled "bear-lee-OWES."
Here is a link to The Best of Berlioz.
My Star by Robert BrowningAll, that I know
Of a certain star
Is, it can throw
(Like the angled spar)*
Now a dart of red,
Now a dart of blue
Till my friends have said
They would fain see, too,
My star that dartles the red and the blue!
Then it stops like a bird; like a flower, hangs furled:*
They must solace themselves with the Saturn above it.
What matter to me if their star is a world?
Mine has opened its soul to me; therefore I love it.
* Spar is a stout pole
* furled - rolled up and secured; as, furled sails bound securely to the spar; a furled flag.
