My apologies to everybody who follows my newsletter, Talk about books, by RSS. The RSS for yesterday’s post, about Robert Browning’s poem, “My Last Duchess” went a bit haywire halfway through, and apparently stopped recognizing the angle brackets in html tags. I don’t know why this happened but it seems to have something to do with the fact that I used em spaces to indent the lines of poetry. The web version of the post is displaying correctly, if you’d like to read it there.

Sorry for the inconvenience. I hope that normal service will be resumed for the next post. I don’t expect to be using em spaces in it, at any rate. Thanks for reading.
