I really enjoyed the book. I enjoy reading about writers and, for some odd reason, psychopath women. The ending felt a little too convenient, but overall, I loved this book for a rainy Saturday read.
Nothing like a grammar debate in a book!
This is the first book I‘ve read from Goethe. I never worried about reading translations before, but now that I‘m reading in Spanish, I‘m starting to realize how much the translations change from the original work. However, I did really enjoy this book. I was really upset about the baby‘s death and how no one seemed sad about it. I haven‘t read any literary criticism about the novel, but I‘m guessing he modeled it after a Shakespearean tragedy.
“Nay, faith let me not play a woman; I have a beard coming.” #shakespearereadalong This whole section about the part assigning was funny.
Poor, Jupiter! I love the wording of this little section. #hugonuts
What makes a book good? It‘s really a mystery. I‘m trying to pick books for a new class I‘m teaching in the fall, and this classic book is just so good. Trying to decide if I think my students will enjoy it. Anyone had good luck with teaching with this one? #teachersoflitsy
Even my high school students find this sonnet funny. Happy birthday, Shakespeare.
This is the first book I‘ve read in Spanish. I started it in November, but I‘ve taken my time and only read about three pages at a time. I thought the stories had good cliffhangers, and I was actually curious about what was going to happen next. I felt as if it were a good way to learn new vocabulary since he repeated words throughout the stories. #spanish #learningasecondlanguage
