Aw, drat. Now I have way too much to read again...just picked up this one:

Sounded really interesting (that's Leigh Hunt, btw, the text in the image that is barely legible). Anybody read it/liked it?

I'll have to look out for that one - I read Anthony Holden was working on a Hunt Biography - That's my task for today - to track it down :D

I hope it's out in Europe too :?

That looks like a tantalising read, Saturn.

I'm mired in my Heath Anthology for my class (the one I attend) and Beowulf for my other class (the one I teach). :shock:

Could be worse things to be mired in :wink:

This book I'm reading is a bit heavy going but really fascinating and recreats the polytheist society vividly. It also refutes the belief that it was dying when Christianity was on the rise. It was every bit as real to most people as the God of the bible.

Keats would have loved this :shock:

Just bought Tender is the Night to read on the plane! :D

Nothing like Fitzgerald to keep you from falling into a half sleep that will only leave you more tired when you "wake up."

Look what I found in my local second-hand book store...

Two books of poems by Robert Gittings [yes that one!!], and to top it all off one of them is signed by the author :shock:

I've just had a quick read and his poetry is quite as good as his criticism.
