of a Comma Queen" and here are some tips so far:
- substitute "and" where the comma is if the comma's placement
seems odd and see if it sounds better
- do not read Introductions unless the author wrote it.
If a translator or other person wrote it, do not read before the story.
" I never read an introduction that is not by the author: I find it gets
in the way, and can prevent me from reading the book. I once tried
to read Ivanhoe, because it was cited in some children's series- Trixie
Belden or Betsy and Tacy--and I got so bogged down in the scholarly
pages with lowercase roman numerals that I never go to Sir Walter Scott.
I still have never read Ivanhoe."
