Biographers Day

Biographies dominate the posting industry’s bestseller lists. However biographical writing hasn't always loved such recognition, and biographical conventions have developed substantially within the centuries.The current type of biography came from within the eighteenth-century and it is most carefully connected with James Boswell, who began an remarkable biography of his charming companion Samuel Manley – poet, journalist, critic, and author from the first British dictionary.Warm, expansive, uncompromising, and extensively detailed, Boswell’s ‘Life of Samuel Johnson’ established a different way of writing biography and formed the emergence from the biography format that's popular today.Biographers Day remember the very first meeting of Boswell and Manley in 1763 inside a London bookshop and it is an excellent day to celebrate the genre. Why don't you mark Biographers Day by reading through a brand new biography, revisting a classic favourite, or possibly even going for a consider Boswell’s ‘Life of Samuel Johnson’ itself.

Spinal Tap A to Zed

Rock ’n Roll Creation (Megaphone, 1977): Tap ventures into heavy metal tunes with religious themes. According to a review read to the band by Marty DiBergi during "This is Spinal Tap": "This pretentious ponderous collection of religious rock psalms is enough to prompt the question, 'What day did the Lord create Spinal Tap, and couldn't he have rested on that day too?' " Official band biographer scoffs: "Score one for the bean-counters. A shoddy collection of rejected tracks after the band's much publicized lawsuit against Megaphone." Includes off-key version of Tap's rarely performed punk song, "Young, Smug and Famous." No rating. (IST) Title song rereleased on 1984 soundtrack album. Mistakenly referred to by DiBergi in documentary by its working title, "The Gospel According to Spinal Tap." The band would later concede that the album had been "underlooked, underbought and underrecorded." It also revealed that the album originally had been scheduled to be recorded using 16 tracks, but that an engineer at the recording studio sold four of the tracks to another band. (DV) See also Pod.

What is the complete "every dog has his day" proverb?

What is the complete "every dog has his day" proverb?

From the two sources referenced below:

EVERY DOG HAS HIS DAY - "According to the medieval Dutch scholar Erasmus, the saying came about as a result of the death of the Greek playwright Euripides, who in 405 B.C. was mauled and killed by a pack of dogs loosed upon him by a rival. Thus the saying is usually taken to mean that even the most lowly person will at some time get revenge on his oppressor, no matter how powerful the man may be.

The Greek biographer Plutarch recorded the proverb for the first time in 'Moralia' (A.D. c. 95) rendering it as 'Even a dog gets his revenge,' and Richard Taverner included the first version in English - 'A dogge hath a day' - centuries later in his 'Proverbes' or Adages' (1539).What was virtually the modern form appeared in John Ray's 'A collection of English Proverbs' (1670) as 'Every dog hath his day'." From "Wise Words and Wives' Tales: The Origins, Meanings and Time-Honored Wisdom of Proverbs and Folk Sayings Olde and New" by Stuart Flexner and Doris Flexner (Avon Books, New York, 1993)."

This proverb was used in Shakespeare's "Hamlet" (Act 5, Scene 1)

HAMLET:

Let Hercules himself do what he may,

The cat will mew and dog will have his day.

Everyone likes to note this, but that's not where it originates. It was used in pre-Shakespearean days.

In "Wise Words and Wives' Tales: The Origins, Meanings and Time-Honored Wisdom of Proverbs and Folk Sayings Olde and New" by Stuart Flexner and Doris Flexner (Avon Books, New York, 1993), the history of this proverb is traced to the medieval Dutch scholar Erasmus.

Erasmus said that in 405 B.C. Euripides, a Greek playwright, was mauled and killed by a pack of dogs loosed upon him by a rival. So the saying is usually taken as "even the most lowly person will at some time get revenge on his oppressor, no matter how powerful the man may be."

Plutarch, a Greek biographer, recorded the proverb for the first time in 'Moralia' (A.D. 95): 'Even a dog gets his revenge'.

Richard Taverner includes the phrase in 'Proverbes' or Adages' (1539) as the first English version: 'A dogge hath a day'.

In John Ray's 'A collection of English Proverbs' (1670) it was further modified almost to what it is now: 'Every dog hath his day'.
