"Through the Looking Glass"
Through the Looking Glass,
The hero with a thousand faces, the

a confederacy of dunces.

  1. "The Republic"

    East of Eden,
    Light in August,
    Oryx and Crake
    Praying through the Bible.

    Only question is whether the plural of "leviathan" is "leviathan," as I assert, or, "leviathans." Don't have any good way to take photos. Sorry.

  2. I think one of the coolest things about this type of poetry is the added depth brought by any understanding/impression of the books/authors in the newly created context. And you've read Oryx and Crake then? What do you think of Atwood? I need to read more of her.

  3. h, and leviathan is a transliteration of the Hebrew word for whale and its plural is a standard, boring -s.

  4. Hahaha. No, I picked it up on your recommendation, I believe, but I have not read it yet. I enjoyed, "The Handmaiden's Tale," although parts of it were a little TOO feminist for me. On that list, I have not read "Light in August," "Oryx and Crake," and, "Catch-22." That is why I brought them with me, though.

  5. I don't know "Light in August," but "Catch-22" is HILARIOUS!

  6. I've read pathetically little Faulkner. Mostly short stuff and Sound and the Fury.
