Okay, as I explained in an earlier post I've decided to delve into some 'Classics.' At a Writer's Conference in San Diego about two years ago, I had heard a pair of young female agents discussing how they would never have agreed to represent the likes of Hemingway or Fitzgerald. They found their wor...

Is it an impossible thing to say that you didn't like a classic? I still appreciate this novel and I am somehow glad I read it, but I was not able to get into the story at all, which is a pity, because it actually is a good plot and storyline despite Faulkner's style of writing, which I seem not to ...

As I've gotten older I find I am more receptive to the comedy in canonical authors such as Faulkner and Joyce.

I'm not really sure what to say about this one. It was very repetitive and quite annoying at times. I'm not sure if I wouldn't have been better off reading it instead of listening to the audio but I think the audio was the only thing that really made it bearable. I don't really have much to say bey...

The first time I ever read Faulkner's As I Lay Dying, I remember not caring much for it. I admired the way it was told, having so many different POV's throughout, but a bunch of it seemed like random inane babble to me at times. And half the time, I missed a great deal of what was going on. This was...
