Blues and Greens

Sorry I’ve been absent for a while – don’t say I didn’t warn you!

I had a weekend away with my church, Oxford Community Church, which was a great time of getting to know God better and being bowled over once more by His love and grace. This was coupled with sleeping on a very hard, very cold floor… still, can’t have everything.

Thought I’d keep you in the loop – have been re-reading primary texts for my dissertation, and noticed that they were all rather co-ordinated, not to say beautiful in their own right. I daresay I’ll be writing more eloquently about their contents in time to come (those which haven’t already appeared on Stuck-in-a-Book, anyway) but here is more playing with Picasa 3 to give you a glimpse of what’s going on!

Do comment away on the books in the picture, if you have eyesight that good…

    hat a nice looking bunch of books and I am ashamed to say I have not read a single one of them, even the Rebecca West — I am a huge fan of hers but this one has slipped past the radar. Look forward to hearing what you have to say about them.

    “Lolly Willows” – YES (recommended by Salley Vickers at a Persephone conference at Newnham Colleg, Cambridge)

    “The Haunted Woman” – YES (recommended by …..um …er…. could it have been by a certain Simon of Stuck-in-a-Book ?)

    Just maybe, Ruth ;-)
    Was that yes = read, or yes = liked? I can’t remember what you thought of The Haunted Woman

    Have you ever read any Richard Dawkins?

    I found ‘Lolly Willowes’ quite an odd book…wasn’t sure what the author really wanted to do with it. Am excited to see Vita S-W on there – haven’t yet read ‘The Heir’!

    I’m a great fan of Sylvia Townsend Warner and I love Lolly Willowes, although I have reservations about the devil.

    I’ll be interested in what you think of Harriet Hume. That’s the only Rebecca West I’ve read that I really did not enjoy.

    I love Rebecca West, but I have to say that Harriet Hume is a bit daft. It has its moments but nothing like the brilliance of her later fiction.
