I’ve read a lot this week. An insane amount, and a lot of different things as well.
Here’s a list (not complete yet because I haven’t finished the week):
- The Plant that Ate Dirty Socks
- The Greatest Salesman in the World
- Sidney’s Defense of Poesie
- A lot of Sidney’s poems from the Norton Anthology of Poetry, pages 208-220
- Descartes’ Meditations, 1st and 2nd
- Three articles that you don’t care about that were on the mind and language
- Two Etgar Keret stories (both were quite short, don’t recommend them)
- Walt Witman’s “Song of Myself,” which is a very, very long poem (52 parts, and some parts are multiple pages)
- The Indian in the Cupboard
- Wordsworth’s Preface for the Lyrical Ballads
- All Wordworth’s poems in the Norton, except “The Ruined Cottage,” which consisted of pages 763-767 and 801-805
Add in to that blogs, newspaper, and other random other readings and I am a quite well read person today.
And why do you need to know all this? Honestly, I think that list is quite impressive (humility! I must remember humility!). It’s almost all of what I’ve been doing this week–that and class. So it’s worth mentioning.
