Rebecca | Daphne D Maurier
post image

“Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again. It seemed to me I stood by the iron gate leading to the drive, and for a while I could not enter, for the way was barred to me. There was a padlock and a chain upon the gate. I called in my dream to the lodge-keeper, and had no answer, and peering closer through the rusted spokes of the gate I saw that the lodge was uninhabited.”

MaGoose I need to read this again soon. 1y
niluferplum @MaGoose I have revisited all those children‘s books recently (the tales of Beatrix Potter, Paddington Bear, Winnie the Pooh, Alice...) and have come to the conclusion that they are even more fun for adults❣️ (edited) 1y
MaGoose @niluferplum I never read Paddington Bear or Winnie the Pooh when I was younger. Now may be a good time to do that. 1y
niluferplum @MaGoose Tons of fun await!🙌🏻😊 1y

When I finished reading the book, I lay back and basked in its beauty and glory for a while. I had to catch my breath.

A Room With A View | E.M. Forster
post image

Page 204, I stop and reflect on what makes this work ultimately so stirring and profound. It is just a story. Why should it command such high regard? I play the devil's advocate against myself. But the minute I ask the question, my mind answers,

“It speaks the Truth, that is why.”

And I read on, and soon Mr. Emerson says, "Yes, for we fight for more than Love or Pleasure: there is Truth. Truth counts, Truth does count."

A Room With a View | E. M. Forster
post image

E.M. Forster published this masterpiece in 1908–110 years ago! Enlightened thinking is trying to emerge in the society he describes. The author himself is wonderfully modern and enlightened. And why should that surprise me when Homer is so palpable across the ages?

Just finished the first volume—entitled Tsubaki—of The Weight of Secrets. Sober, modest, troubled. Intriguing too.

It's been a journey. The first 150 pages were a battle of wills between the book and me. I took it to Turkey and New Zealand without managing to read a page. But then it opened itself up like a flower in spring, and it spoke to me. It connected to my own loss and my personal view on history and time. By the end of it, I was hailing Ali Smith as a genius. I am grateful to the friend who made me read this.
