Well I can finally say I‘ve read this. A few words describe my experience, epic, enlightening, enchanting, life elevating. Might sound silly but I feel better for having read this. Gonna take a few days off then find something short. 😁

Is it sometimes best not to confess one‘s love but to keep it a secret? In this poem Blake explains why sometimes it‘s better to have loved and kept quiet than to tell your affections. 🤷‍♀️

TheSpineView Not sure I agree with his view. Regardless, I like the poem. 😊 now

#GratefulReads Day 20: While I have read quite a few Dickens, being a huge fan, these are two that fit into the category of #ClassicYouHaventRead. I think I now own several of his classic novels that I wish to get to, hopefully soon. 😭😂📚📚📚

Wow. I wasn't really expecting The Epic of Gilgamesh to be so beautiful. Honestly, I wasn't sure I would understand it. But the author of this version has pieced the story together in a way that even the non-reader will understand and fall in love with. The narrators are more like performers, emotional and passionate. The author also includes an essay that goes deeper into the story, looking for deeper meaning. Loved this so much.

Day 18 of #GratefulReads is #BeenOnYourTBRTooLong and now is when I reveal my literary dark secret! I‘ve been reading Nicholas Nickelby for YEARS! It started okay but I got bogged down in parts and then I just stalled on it. Dickens is not my idea of fun times. 🤦🏻‍♀️

Day 19 - #ClassicYouEnjoyed #GratefulReads #CrimeandPunishment #FyodorDostoyevsky

A must read classic! Masterpiece! Riveting!

Murder story, told from a murder‘s point of view, that implicates even the most innocent reader in its enormities. It is a cat-and-mouse game between a tormented young killer and a cheerfully implacable detective. It is a preternaturally acute investigation of the forces that impel a man toward sin, suffering, and grace.

OriginalCyn620 I have not read this classic yet! 1d
EadieB @OriginalCyn620 You should check it out! Very interesting read! 1d
