Novel gazing

Booking Through Thursday

  • When somebody mentions “literature,” what’s the first thing you think of? (Dickens? Tolstoy? Shakespeare?)
  • Do you read “literature” (however you define it) for pleasure? Or is it something that you read only when you must?


I think novels. And I love novels. I do read classical literature for fun. I was talking to a girlfriend recommending some stories for her children and she said that she didn't feel the classics were worth reading. I tried to explain that they were classics for a reason, through the horror and shock and stuttering. There's something wonderful about a well written, well executed tale. The language is magical and creates vivid and real worlds.
