I ACTUALLY ADORE DONNE
WHEN I am dead, and doctors know not why,
And my friends' curiosity
Will have me cut up to survey each part,
When they shall find your picture in my heart,
I'll be reading, amongst other things, one of the Harry Potter books, and Jon Savage's England's Dreaming. I love my course.
i'm slightly envious that you're being told to read it!
and read the first couple of chapters but then got distracted or something, so I'm really happy that I'll finally get a kick behind to read the whole thing.
Oh and I'll be reading Peter Pan as well.
i think the only things on my reading list that i've read fully are a Richard Dawkins and Alice In Wonderland ...
and which book is it? i want to do this course...
but it's for a module i'm doing about children's literature.
and I still haven't looked at mine.
but still goodies
i think there will be some nice theory texts though.
and i'm also doing a module on The Western In Film which will be all movies! exciting!!!!
I'm doing one on film musicals, which could be good and could be horrible, time will show.
but yeah, do you know any of the films?
and we don't have to watch them all but The Good The Bad and the Ugly, Once Upon A Time In The west, Brokeback Mountain and Shane all figure. hehe I'll go find the list!

no lectures, just 2 hour seminars, and watching loads of westerns! I WIN AT LIFE
its really cool. i love westerns. brokeback mountain is kinda boring though. do you get to do any sam peckinpah films? he's awesome
do you know whats good to read for faulkner?
also Faulkner. I've never read any YET, but isn't The Sound and the Fury his most famous?
I have a massive poster my bandmate bought me from a junkshop for a 1970s conference at Manchester University called CONTEMPORARY SOUTHERN LITERATURE on my wall. It has a big, powerful black fist on it.
i'll be living not that far away i think. its near almeria which is a really cool place.
i dont know anything about faulkner, he's oddly influential in south america which is why i'm curious, i'll have a look for that one though.
that sounds cool, i have old tshirts of my dad's from checkpoint charlie from when he used to live in east germany
let me know and i promise i'll come and visit! except i'll be scared of travelling through rural spain
i guess modernism really influenced south american writing?
i think borges did the spanish (or at least the argentinean) translations of faulkner. as a result i'm kinda curious. its like walt whitman is always being referenced by spanish writers, i've never been so sure what to make of that, maybe its the whole rural/urban thing, who knows.
i'm moving in about 3-4 weeks, and probably be in spain till the end of the year (maybe longer). spain actually has a really modern and efficient infrastructure and is pretty cool to travel through.
I love tennessee williams more than anything
but I'm not sure :(
does anybody know whats good to read by him?
hence the Southern Literature and the westerns
