Dear friends and family, I hope you have a fun weekend. My siblings are out of school for fall break, so I will be having a blast with the fam going to an amusement park and hopefully seeing a movie. Do you have any exciting plans? I also wanted to share some great literature links I discovered this week. Sadly, they are not as cultured as this beret-sporting dog. Ah, well. One does what one can.
A 100-page private notebook belonging to Bram Stoker has been discovered by his descendant. I love that these authorial treasures are still being found! How amazing would it be to discover one?
A UCL professor discusses his choices for the Top Five Victorian Novels. I was thrilled to see both Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights but surprised at the absence of George Eliot. What would be on your list?
A great blog post about reading James Joyce. I myself made it through one chapter of A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man before jumping ship.
A fun little catalogue of Jane Austen heroes (and villains). Question: where is Jonny Lee Miller as Mr. Knightley?
Ah, that's better.
