    Oh yeah! Speaking of Swan's, I started reading Swann's Way by Marcel Proust... I actually bought all of the volumes of the book Search for Lost Time and it will probably take me a few years to read, lol. He is such a fascinating writer.

    The Love Sonnets of Mirza Ghalib

    Ghar mein tha kya, kih tera gham use ghaarat karta
    woh jo rakhte the hum ek hasrat-e taamir, so hai


    What was left in the home that your sorrow would have destroyed it
    The desire to build that we had is still there

    That was a wonderful read!! I'm glad you recommended it to me back then.

    Currently devouring: Hoffmann's tales, Carlo Gozzi's plays, Muratov's Images of Italy. I am getting incredible insight into Italy's history and culture, everything about Italian art and literature is suddenly falling into place. I'm in love with Renaissance again.

    I am also giggling about Emasculation of the Unicorn, written by C. T. B. Harris, Ph. D. I'll make a thread about this later.

    "Lavondyss" is even better. It's the second book and the best in Mythago series.
