I read a lot of terrific old Spanish and Italian books, and I always check to see if there's a decent English translation available for my friends who don't read those languages. One of these days I'm going to find a book that's not available in English and I'm going to make 'em a translation. Making useful resources like translation guides freely available could really revolutionize our culture, I believe. Thanks!

The Dalkey Archive is a bona fide National Treasure.

A great find, and I agree with chavenet about the Dalkey Archive.
