Something that will be much needed after the holidays... ?

A stanza from "Sonnet to Sleep"

O soft embalmer of the still midnight,
Shutting with careful fingers and benign,
Our gloom - pleas'd eyes, embower'd from the light,
Enshaded in forgetfulness divine:
O soothest Sleep! If so it please thee, close
In midst of this thine hymn my willing eyes,
Or wait the 'Amen', ere thy poppy throws
Around my bed its lulling charities.

Bookwomble This is one of my favourite poems. Lovely to come across it in my feed, thank you 😊 1mo

Took a while getting into this book but was then hooked. A fun and interesting story involving a man who needed to change his ways and a ‘homeless man‘ he was kind to helped bring this about. Didn‘t see the ending coming until right towards the end. 😢 Not the ending I expected through the book. The final chapter saved the book. ❤️

30th book finished for #WinterReadathon

Tove_Reads I just can‘t start reading her book due to not being a fan of her father. I shouldn‘t let it stop me, but somehow it just does. 1mo

ETA Hoffmann wrote a book based on The Monk?! I'm going to need to read it! Have you read it @Bookwomble ?

KathyWheeler The Monk is one of the strangest books I‘ve ever read! I had no idea anyone had written a book based on it. 2mo
vivastory @KathyWheeler Me neither! Especially the author of The Nutcracker 😂 2mo
KathyWheeler @vivastory I know! That‘s particularly shocking. 😄 (edited) 2mo

Meet Me Under the Ombu Tree is a very emotion-filled story.
It is filled with themes such as family, love (true love, forbidden love) friendships, regret and forgiveness. It is emotional and moving, and after the story ends, it doesn't leave you.

5 ⭐

The Life and Opinions of the Tomcat Murr | Anthea Bell, E.T.A. Hoffmann, Jeremy Adler

Just happened upon a reference to The Life and Opinions of the Tomcat Murr in chapter 4 of Middlemarch (“Who can tell what just criticisms Murr the Cat may be passing on us beings of wider speculation?”) and boy, does this fantasy(?) book sound like a trip! 😸 #george #1001books

vivastory I recently added This Hoffmann book to my TBR. It does sound pretty wild! 4mo
Graywacke I recognized this cat by name, but I know absolutely nothing about Murr except the title. She has a lot of puzzling-to-me references. 4mo
