A Dancer to God, Ted Hughes
A Dancer to God: Tributes to T. S. Eliot - Ted Hughes

Three tributes to T.S. Eliot, two very short, one too long...

 

Hughes' approach to literature is a bizarre amalgum of comparative mythology and assumed symbolism - whether deliberate or subconcious on the author's part. It's entirely alien to me. Perhaps I would understand it better if I re-capitulated Hughes' education in mythology and anthropology but I doubt I would relate to it any better. Hence the longest of these essays was kinda wasted on me. The second, howver, departs from Hughes' norm and talks about the structure of The Wasteland and I found it a lot more accessible and useful. I could have done with more of that.

Hughes rates Eliot and Yeats as the two greatest 20th Century poets. Eliot I know and love. Yeats I'm currently completely familiar with.

Hughes' critical outlook is completely alien to me.

Blog Tour w/Review - Wrong Bed, Right Girl
 

Meet the Author:

 

Rebecca Brooks lives in New York City in an apartment filled with books. She received a PhD in English but decided it was more fun to write books than write about them. She has backpacked alone through India and Brazil, traveled by cargo boat down the Amazon River, climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, explored ice caves in Peru, trekked to the source of the Ganges, and sunbathed in Burma, but she always likes coming home to a cold beer and her hot husband in the Bronx. She likes outdoorsy guys with both muscle and heart and independent women ready to try something new.

About the Book:

 

Falling head-first into the wrong woman’s bed was not how Reed Bishop’s night was supposed to go. Now a gorgeous, half-naked ballet dancer was threatening his manhood…with a book. He can’t blame her.
 
It wasn’t how it seemed—he was just doing his job, tracking down his lead informant, who, unfortunately, took off, leaving him to figure out what to do with her friend. Staying in her apartment was no longer safe.
 
And that’s how he got himself into this mess.
Now she’s sleeping in his bed while he tosses and turns on the couch.
 
There are pink tights in his bathroom.
Pointe shoes next to his boots.
 
He swears he won’t touch her like that…but he can’t ignore his fantasies.
 
As a tattooed, muscled DEA Agent, Reed’s seen some things. Drug dealers, murderers…He can’t let Talia get close. Even though she’s made it clear they’re both fighting the same hunger. And he definitely can’t use his handcuffs on her…no matter how much she begs.

Wrong Bed, Right Girl (Accidental Love Book 2)Wrong Bed, Right Girl by Rebecca Brooks
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #2, in the Accidental Love series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader understanding and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this series in order.

Talia has just won her freedom. Another dancer in her troupe has left from an emergency, she gets a small apartment and principal position. Then she abruptly meets him.

Reed is just doing his job. If he does not do his due diligence, people die. He wants to solve this case without losing innocent lives. Then he meets her.

The attraction for both of them is immediate. The chemistry is spot on and the heat just builds. I loved that we learned about both of them as individuals, and that they brought out more in each other. Had great humor, and yet was still serious and sweet at times.
