I apologize for lack of significant posts in the past few weeks. I’ve been quite busy/lazy. But finals end tomorrow afternoon, so I’ll have vast swaths of free time over the next month to read, write, blog, and not talk to people. It’ll be great.
I am thus trying to put together my reading list for Christmas break. Right now it consists of:
- (finish reading) The Idiot by Fyodor Dostoevsky
- The Devils by Fyodor Dostoevsky
- Seascape, Soulscape by Eugene Curtsinger (a book of literary criticism about Moby-Dick by a recently-deceased professor of literature at UD)
- The Confidence-Man by Herman Melville
- Light in August by William Faulkner
Anyone have any more suggestions? I won’t promise I’ll get to them, of course, since these few may very well get me through the break, depending on how quickly I read.
Also, I figure I’ll announce the classes I’m taking next semester, given they’ve actually already shown up in this post:
- Early Modern Literature
- Special Topics: Moby-Dick
- Faulkner’s Vision (hence Light in August, or whichever other Faulkner book I decide to pick up)
- Analyis II
- Intermediate German II
