Holy Willie, Tam o’shanter
The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner ~ I just finished this novel last night and all I can say is it is 'head-trip'. I'm hoping the lectures are helpful to analysis!
Song’s of Innocence and of Experience
Frankenstein ~ I reads this ages ago when I was still in high school and enjoyed it. I'm hoping that the intervining 15 years will lend me a different insight.
Wuthering Heights ~ Guilty confession time: I have been avoiding anything by Jane Austen and the Bronte sisters like plague during my adult reading life (mostly because their writings are classified as Romance) yet I am already half way through this novel and I like it, a lot >.<
Samuel Taylor Coleridge:
‘The Rime of the Ancient Mariner’, ‘Christabel’, ‘Kubla Khan’
The Eve of St. Agnes, Endymion, Ode to a Nightingale, Ode on a Grecian Urn ~This gave me uncontrolable squees. I've been a fan of Keats for ages!
Robert Louis Stevenson:
The strange case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde ~ Again a childhood read, so I'm looking forward to a perspective shift.
The Picture of Dorian Gray ~ I've read the first chapter and am intrigued although it's giving me funny thoughts about Stuart Townsend's portrayl of Dorian in LXG.
Dracula ~ I've read this novel several times so I'm looking forward to an academic slant.
I'll post about my non-Academic readings another time. I do make time for non-studious reading, if I didn't I'd probably go barking mad.
