Re: [NABOKOV-L] {Sighting?] O'Connell - O' Donell
Re: [NABOKV-L] [NABOKOV-L] {Sighting?] O'Connell - O' DonellStan Kelly-Bootle [ to JM "mysteriously, he is named Daniel O'Connell."] I'm deeply puzzled. No conceivable mystery about one of Ireland's most renowned rebel politicians! Dónal Ó Conaill (6 August 1775 - 15 May 1847; English spelling: Daniel O'Connell.

JM: It was wonderful to get rich information about Daniel O'Connell and therefore your interpretation of my "mystery" enriched us all. Actually this exclamation was merely applicable to the Spanish translation that mentioned Daniel in a paragraph where he was not so named in the original (perhaps this reveals the translators enthusiasm about him?).

Alexey, why do you associate decapitation to the Mascodagama act?
Thanks for the poems and translations.
