What’s coming up next
Posted January 24, 2007on:
I misplaced my notebook with my jottings on last week’s TLS so that’s a loss for now. I have the previous one to that, the January 12th, but it’s a library copy. We’ll see. With the new one out tomorrow I may focus on that one. There doesn’t look to be any imminent new NYRB issues so for now you’ll only be seeing journals posts on the TLS and Paris Review. I’ve begun my House Rules review so hopefully that goes smoothly.
Reflecting on recent readings I realised that I had not read any pre-20th century work since November (excluding poetry). Tut, tut, tut. February will be more classical and I decided it would be as good a time as any to read Radcliffe. What say you, litlove, could you spare the time for Ann next month? I have The Italian and plan to acquire Mysteries of Udolpho tomorrow. If you can’t never mind, for on the word of a Romantic lit. student I also got the unexpurgated The Monk by Matthew Lewis which promised to be a scandalous read. All the talk on the PBS Jane Eyre adaptation convinced me to give it a re-read: a practise in which I do not often indulge for leisure. I’m excited about that.
On the encouragement of an older friend I may also attempt *gulp* Don Quixote.
