Hi, I look forward to meeting fellow lovers of literature! Although, I am a classicist by training, I would like our reading list to include modern and contemporary classics of world literature. Please feel free to e-mail book selection suggestions
Non-fiction: Joan Gussow's The Feeding Web- I read this anthology of articles when I was 15 years old. It opened my eyes to how ecology and food culture relate to social justice. Fiction:The works of Edgar Allen Poe and Oscar Wilde
This meetup group offers its members a chance to converse with intelligent, lovely people who are serious about literature.
Welcome Antonia. It is great to collaborate with like-minded people in the hopes of a deeper understanding and discovery. I look forward to hearing your thoughts in regard to Jung. I plan on posting some short passages of Jung in the discussions forum, but if you have any thoughts you would like to share, feel free and post them.
Welcome Antonia! That's my sister's name, and you are the first person I've ever met with the same name. I'm looking forward to meeting you and hearing more about this unfinished PhD sometime soon...
Thanks!!! Me too!
Glad you found us, and I hope we get to meet you soon.
The Makioka Sisters is one of my favorite Japanese novels. I've also read "Naomi"; I didn't like it; I found the narrator's obsession with Naomi pathetic, and it made me uncomfortable. (Maybe that was the point.) Love to join the salon. It sounds like the choices are just up my alley. - Jane
hi, nice to hear from you. I'm looking forward to being part of a book club! My main reading interests include "classics" and Nobel Laureates. I am pretty open to suggestions and some of my book ideas include those by Henry James, Dreiser, Hardy, or Faulkner, Nadine Gordimer, Saul Bellow, Galsworthy, etc....
I'd love to hear your ideas.
