    Book review: Mrs Dalloway by Virginia Woolf

    Book review of Mrs Dalloway by Virginia Woolf Mrs Dalloway by Virginia Woolf is considered a classic by many. It’s also one of the books on the Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge list. Finishing that is one of my long term reading goals. Mrs Dalloway and her flowers All it says on the back of my edition of the book is “Still, life had a way of adding day to day.” Which is actually super fitting for the book. I remember watching the movie based on the book, “The Hours” with Meryl Streep. It begins by Mrs Dalloway saying “I’ll do the flowers myself”. Just as the book. But from there,…

    Book review: To be taught if fortunate

    Book review of To be taught if fortunate To be taught if fortunate is a short sci-fi novel by Becky Chambers. I found it via looking through my friends reads on Goodreads, and it looked enticing. Technically, it is categorized as a space opera. Whatever that means. (A quick online search tells me; “a novel, film, or television programme set in outer space, typically of a simplistic and melodramatic nature” – which doesn’t really say anything) To be taught if fortunate by Becky Chambers “In the future, instead of terraforming planets to sustain human life, explorers of the galaxy transform themselves. At the turn of the twenty-second century, scientists make…

    Book review of The Theater and its double “The Theatre and its double” by Antonin Artaud is a collection of letters and manifests, in the book I’ve got. It relates the theatre in its broadest sense, to all sorts of phenomenons and events. All wrapped up in Artauds personal attitude towards what constitutes theatre.

It should be read again and again …. Artaud oozed magical desires. He was the metaphysician of the theater. – Jean-Louis Barrault. A collection…
