The worst thing to do, if one has a blog, is to neglect it! But since coming to Maine I haven't had access to a computer regulary and with the holidays...well....need I say more!
Last time I checked in I was putting out a call for impressions of Forster and his works! A couple of takers thus far so will continue to put that together. I have however finished reading all of Forster's novels on the Random House list: Room With A View, Howard's End, A Passage to India.
Currently I am reading Deliverence. I wanted to get away from the never ending spew of English hyper-steriod etiquette:
"In a desperate bid to avoid emotion, the English have developed an entire language around the evasion of embarrassing situations:
"Oh Dittums, can you ever forgive me!"
"Dash it, that was rather a blow.’
‘I don’t suppose you could possibly..’
‘I’m terribly sorry…’
‘Would it be too much trouble to…’
and the like.....
I can't think of a more pertinent 180 degree turn!
Which author would you rather read?
Forster of Dickey?
