  • "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.

Language hacker Benny Lewis shows how anyone anywhere can learn any language without leaving their home, using a simple toolkit and by harnessing the power of the Internet. Benny definitely wasn't born with the 'language gene'. After graduating in electronic engineering in his native Ireland he spent six months in Spain struggling to learn Spanish. This frustrating experience fuelled his determination to take a different approach to learning foreign languages.
