    a simple story can be so perplexing.

    what is the role of setting in the old man and the sea?

    Read it for a class once... it was as if there were four stories layered into it. And then again, you never really know if those four stories are intented or figments added in by you.

    nate, you should read "portnoy's complaint."

    I'm currently reading "american pastoral" by philip roth.

    if you want, I could send you the audiotape version (if I can find all of it).

    I'm currently re-reading Joyce's works, stopping after each to read an analysis of it. I WILL get through Finnegans Wake!

    Joyce is someone I should revist

    i'll be damned if i can get through ulysses...maybe if i get in the canoe with that book and a little food and a thermos of coffee and paddle out into the lake a ways and don't come back until it's over.....
    the books i read last week and this week are
    the lost continent by bill bryson
    and brave on the rocks by sabrina ward harrison.
    also some lovely smut but i won't get into that....

    canoes are for thoreau or whitman. if you want to read joyce gather a group of your more literary friends together with enough irish stout or irish whiskey (even better - both) to last you the night and start taking turns reading it aloud to each other.

    My father learned English at 23 and read "Ulysses" at 25. When recently asked if he understood it, he smiled sheepishly and answered, "I think."

    This is my wisdom.

    That's the way to do it. Need some Tullamore Dew for that, and candles, and shepards pie for dinner.
