Hello Book Dragons!

Time for another WWW Wednesday.

 

What I am Currently Reading

I’m still plodding on with the Moonflower Murders I’m really enjoying the short story in the middle of the book but the main story I’m not getting along with the main character at all sadly. I have just started the Aeneid so far so good.

 

What I have Recently Finished Reading

I am fascinated by Sappho, the fact she was a female poet in the ancient Greek period and her name and work have survived for thousands of years is incredible.

 

What I Think I will Read Next

It will be one of these all being well.

 

So there is my WWW Wednesday. Please drop me a comment with your WWW Wednesday and I will head over for a visit.

  1. Oh Sappho! I had to read some of her work in my Modernism course when we covered H.D. I do wish that people wouldn’t focus so much on her gender though. It’s like her whole reputation is “female poet!” I’d never want people to focus so much on my gender when talking about my writing. I find it condescending, and it’s not like people ever do that to men. They just get to have their work analyzed.

    1. I’ve been reading some interesting scholarly reviews of Sappho and it drives me mad that they keep basically calling her a sex mad lesbian. They wouldn’t talk about a mans writing like that so why a woman? I’m just so happy some of her work survived and more is been found as women’s work is so often lost and forgotten.
