Hegel is weirdly kind of convincing, even though I have a hard time following him. What he's saying about the greek gods in relation to classical art is fascinating.

    I am not reading anything right now, but I just finished Under the Volcano last night and I generally take a day or two between books, will probably start something new tomorrow. Not sure how I feel about how the ending of Under the Volcano was executed, Yvonne and Hugh just sort of become convenient tools. At least he didn't try and put a bow on it all.

    I, less than an hour ago, finished reading I Am Legend. I now have the choice of continuing with either Steppenwolf, which I keep dropping and returning to, or The Summer Book, which I stopped reading to start I Am Legend.

      Sorry, we're talking about literature, not genre slop. Try to read real book for once.

      >diary of a mad old man - Tanizaki
      i'm not his biggest fan but i'd place this book between his best and most enjoyable so far.
      i'll probably be able to finish it later today.
      >the complete stories - O'Connor
      halfway through them, the highlights so far have been:
      >the river
      >a good man is hard to find
      >the geranium
      even tho all stories were enjoyable. i really like the way she seems to mix brutal irony and Christian concepts of mercy and redemption in her charaters. most people in fact tend to love her prose and writing style, but to me her portraits of southern hicks are even better.

      steppenwolf it's really good, even if i feel the middle part of the book it's the weakest.

    His notion is particularly tantalizing, the Greeks had the freedom to envision and portray the most beautiful versions of themselves since their gods were born of Greek Spirit, whereas in other cultures the nature of portrayal was like building on faulty land, which results in structures that are constantly in need of reinforcement, prone to subsumation, and more or less fantastical was the word he used iirc.

      I assumed he posited that poetry was the ultimate expression of the spirit or Geist as it’s the word itself.

        He technically has a whole system for the classification of art and further sub-classifications. He did say it was the most original form of writing.

    I just finished Starship Troopers and starting The Forever War. I had read both separately years apart, and learned recently that The Forever War was written in response to Starship Troopers after the author got butthurt. Troopers isn't even controversial, people in the literary world are sheltered little b***hes.

      That's the problem with Heinlein, the political views in his books are banal for most men. His views have always been objectionable for the dregs of society, and in the current milieu, verboten.

    Approaching the end of Water Margin. It's been an entertaining journey but after reading Three Kingdoms, Six Records of a Floating Life and now this back to back I'm ready to take a break from China for a while.
    Think I'll read The Good Soldier Svejk next.

    I have never met anyone who claims to be reading two things at the same time and in fact is reading. Most of the time they are just listening to audiobooks and when it is non-fiction they are not learning anything.
