Excerpt: House Of Mirth by Edith Wharton

Add caption

"Then she found herself in a small library, dark but cheerful, with its wall  of books, a pleasantly faded Turkey rug, a littered desk, and, as he had foretold, a tea-tray on a low table near the window. A breeze had sprung up, swaying inward the muslin curtains, and bringing a fresh scent of mignonette and petunias from the flower-box on the balcony." -p6

Yale Open Culture Course On Literary Theory

Happy New Year! Hope you all have made some good reading & writing related resolutions! Over at Livre Life we've been brushing up on our literary theory with this Open Culture course from Yale University. Fascinating perspective on a course given by someone still around when the "hermeneutic mafia" (Derrida, De Man and Brooks) ran wild through New Haven's High Street. Here's a link to a few more online literature courses from OC in case you're interested. 

Also on the horizon, we're going to be sharing some 2011 highlights and a reading list for 2012 so stay tuned.
