  • "The Title Rings True- Fry hits the ..."

    Overall

    I seem to be going through a 'Fry phase' at the moment, as I've just finished the entire series of 'Stephen Fry in America', watched many episodes of 'Jeeves And Wooster' & have listened to his excellent 'Stephen Fry Presents - Short Stories by Anton Chekhov'. I've even watched his videos debating alongside Christopher Hitchens & have yet to find him annoying, snobbish or arrogant, but rather the model of a renaissance man.

    Overall I found this lived up to expectations & moves me one stage closer to wanting to explore his books again (which initially put me off his work). As yet, I'm still to find anything from Fry's second-wind that hasn't appealed & educated in equal measure. Here's hoping the sequel is as good...

    P.S. If you want to see reviews of the individual sections, please do a search for 'Fry's English Delight' & it should bring them up on page two. The sections are (in order):
    1. 'Current Puns'
    2. 'Metaphor'
    3. 'Quotation'
    4. 'Cliche'

    Stephen Fry hosts four programmes on the joys of the English language - as heard on BBC Radio 4, including Current Puns. Why does our language groan with the weight of puns? What exactly is a pun? And who, or what, is the Thief of Bad Gags?

  • "The Title Rings True- Fry hits the ..."

    Overall

    Many other reviewers have said that Section 1 (?Current Puns?) is the only section worth listening to, but I disagree. This section is arguably the best one, with lots of QI-style insightful gambits. The large quantity of Naval metaphors (e.g. taken aback) are explored in this section, along with 'skeletons of metaphors'. Personally I had no idea that English was so laden with buried metaphors within individual words (e.g. 'sarcastic' meaning 'flesh tearing'). The phrase 'Deep Metaphor' takes on a whole new meaning...

    Stephen Fry hosts this programme on the joys of the English language - as heard on BBC Radio 4. The English language is chock-full of maritime metaphors: cock up, taken aback, chip on your shoulder, and show a leg. And, with the help of a Greek removals firm, we also find the origin of the word 'metaphor'.

    Tim says: "The Title Rings True- Fry hits the Right Notes 2"
  • "More Crumbs from the Table of the M..."

    Overall

    Third albums can be very difficult. Just look at any band (e.g. Oasis, Radiohead) & their third major release tends to be a flop or not live up to expectations.

    In this case, I think there is an exception.

    For one, some time has been left between the first two and this one, which seems to have been just enough to re-invigorate interest & provide the BBC time to think up new ideas.
    For two, Stephen Fry has an eerie gift for being interesting & moving with the winds of change, rather than being capsized by them.

    So, it is with this & as soon as you start the first download, you will find a topic that is compelling, insightful & adds to our wealth of knowledge as a species.

    Overall I'd rate this download as being better than Series 2 & up there with the Series 1. As with previous reviews of this series, I recommend 'Fry and Laurie Read Daudet and Jerome' & his reading of 'Oscar Wilde's Short Stories'.

    I'd also like to recommend, though, 'The Ode Less Travelled' which I'm about halfway through & is turning into a compelling education into how to be a poet (Fry's favourite pastime). 9 parts is a little long but as it is of similar quality to this, it has proven worthwhile...

    P.S. If you want to read reviews for the individual sections, please do a search for 'Fry's English Delight - Series 3' & it will bring up this & the four sections on this audio.

    Paul Noble is a genius with a higher IQ than Einstein. Despite this, he still struggled with language learning at school. He found himself feeling "confused, incapable, and unable to really say anything". As a result of his negative early experiences, Paul has come up with a groundbreaking new method of language teaching that removes the need for months of study. With Paul Noble, everyone really can speak a language.
