This is a blog dedicated to intellectual discussions, studying literature, from the overall themes and symbolism, to the behavior of the character, how these classics are still relevant in today’s world, to book reviews, and I will even be using classic literature to craft advice for fellow novel writers.
One thing my Great Books teacher told me was that if I wasn’t a writer that I should get a degree in psychology. That comment is what brought this blog to life. I’ve always been fascinated with how the human mind works, and I’m currently reading through a list of 100+ classics. Since the Internet is a great platform for creators of all sorts, I decided to throw my hat into the ring.
Writing a blog is something I always wanted to do, but I wasn’t interested in working on what traditional writing blogs are like. I don’t have too many tips I can give as a writer that everyone hasn’t heard before and my life as a writer isn’t that interesting, I just write. What I can do, and love to do, though, is take whatever text I’m reading and study the story, characters and it’s relevence.
Join me on this experiment as I look at Homer, Harry Potter and the books in between. Maybe you too will start thinking more about what you’re reading.
