Amy's Slant on literature…

The Past

Posted on: 08/25/2010


As I was reading yesterday and planning the next few classics I chose to reread, I couldn’t help but be overwhelmed by the memories that came flooding into my head. Each book I chose, like a song, reminded me of an old friend, a teacher or a significant time in my life. I am finally mastering Ulysses and enjoying it so much more than when I read it before. I do believe that often we miss parts of the theme to the story if we aren’t mature enough to understand them. I love his parallels with Homer’s Odyssey, his stream of consciousness style, and rich characterizations make this worth every effort to read… I will keep reading and then choose my next classic, any suggestions?
