By Diction Possessed

Continued from Saturday, May 7, 2016 .

From an obituary in yesterday evening's online New York Times —

"I was writing plays, one-acters, about musicians
who were speakers of the idiom I loved most:
black American male speech, full of curse words,"
he wrote in an autobiographical essay. . . .

The obituary is for a poet who reportedly died on Saturday, May 7.

This  journal on that day ("By Diction Possessed") recalled the death
(on Valentine's Day 2015) of an English actor who was the voice of
the Ring in two of the "Lord of the Rings" films —

Backstory from Wikipedia — See Black Speech —

"The only example of 'pure' Black Speech is
the inscription upon the One Ring . . .

One Ring to rule them all,
One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all
And in the darkness bind them. 
"
