Author Comments: 

numbered so i can just easily keep track of how many are on here.

good luck with Tarantula. when i started to read it i understood why he did not want it released for so long. it is a more blurred version of his liner notes for Highway 61 Revisited.

You need Dostoevsky in your life. Crime & Punishment, The Idiot and The Brothers Karamazov are three of the best things ever written.

Love Joe Sacco (still need to get his Footnotes in Gaza) and Dan Clowes (have yet to read that one in particular, but I love Ghost World and David Boring. And A Velvet Glove Cast in Iron). Tatsumi's A Drifting Life has left me feinding for more...

I've got a book of Chekhov's plays lined up (perhaps after A Doll's House and Pride & Prejudice [the Sacred Fount will have to wait]) so you should do Three Sisters sometime in the near future! The Theban plays are pretty great.

I wanna read Agnes Grey too! She's the only Bronte sister I haven't read (Wuthering Heights blows away Jane Eyre, in my opinion, although both are excellent).

What else, what else. I wanna read the William James!! Annnd the Turn of the Screw, the Conrad and the Borges. My latest discovery that I think you'll enjoy has been Khalil Gibran, I found a well worn copy of The Prophet in my basement. I had heard of it before, of course, but had never got around to it. Stunning, read it in a day.

I didn't really care for We the Living. I didn't like Catcher in the Rye at all, but I'll withhold judgment on Salinger before reading more of him (unlikely in any case).

Anyways, I'm done rambling. Unfortunately you've reminded me of some titles I'd forgotten so my To Read list continues to grow out of control.

G'stuff!

Could you recommend a translation for Dostoyevsky? That's something that gets to me a lot and makes me worry; OH GOD WHAT IF IT IS AN AWFUL TRANSLATION OH GOD OH GOD. so, yeah, you got any suggestions?

I've only read the comics that Joe Sacco drew for Harvey Pekar's American Splendor. Goddamn! I gotta add those Cloweses to my favourite literature list GOD Ghost World <3.
Feinding?

I have read none of them although I always found that Agnes Grey sounded most interesitng. Have you read the Kate Beaton comics about The Bronte Sisters? http://harkavagrant.com/index.php?id=202 classic.

ALL OF THE JAMES SIBLINGS!!!
ARGH TOO MANY BOOKS TO READ. ARGH LOOKING UP GIBRAN RIGHT NOW THANK YOU.

I just want to read We The Living so I can have read all of Ayn Rand's novels. And I want to read more Salinger just because nobody ever does and I am curious.

Yay we are mutually giving eachother ideas <3

THANK YOU <3

re: Crime & Punishment, you can find the whole book here: http://www.online-literature.com/dostoevsky/crimeandpunishment/2/

But is it a good translation? :c

Also I can't stand reading literature on a computer.

THANKS HOWEVER.

From what I've read, yes it is a good translation. One of my favorite books, Thus Spake Zarathustra, is supposed to have a superior translation done by a Walter Kauffman. I first encountered the earlier translation by Thomas Common, and have since read the Kaufman one. Well, I tell you, I much prefer Common's translation, even though Kauffman's is supposed to be better. I think the only way to tell is to read it yourself to find out, but since you don't read literature on the computer NEVERMIND.

regardless, DULY NOTED. THANK YOU.

All I know is where my translation says "sultry" that one says "exceptionally hot". I'd rather role with an edition that doesn't simplify quite so much. Of course I'm no help at all because my translation is from 73 and doesn't give a translator name. I hear you really can't go wrong with the new, unabridged editions.

And I agree, reading is not meant to be done on a computer. I'd say the same goes for movie watching.

Looking shit up on google, I'm going to look for the Sidney Monas or Richard Pevear+Larissa Volokhonsky translations. those ones look like the apparently best ones according to Russian-speakers on google. The translation thing is just something that gets to me in a weird way. I need to really reassure myself that the translations i find are the BEST POSSIBLE ONES or else I can't read it. I get so OCD about some things.
But first I really have to finish Othello and Beyond Good & Evil... D: And i was thinking of reading The Turn of The Screw next too so I could mail a friend of mine my little Henry-James-story book right after.
SO MANY BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOKS.

I can do some shorter things on a computer, but anything longer than a couple pages just feels weird and awkward on a computer screen. Although comics often are okay to be read on a computer screen to me for some reason. Heh.
Yes. D: Unfortunately the computer is the only way to get a lot of more obscure films. If only I had a large white wall and a projector i could pretend I'm in a theatrespace.

I often read on the computer and I find it has certain advantages especially for taking notes/studying, but also for finding what you want immediately. Granted, I do find it limiting at times, there is nothing quite like reading a book in a comfy chair or in bed, but personally I am at the whims of my (rather small) library so I do not put all my stock in them (although I could do inter-library loans...I digress). Besides, there is always the option of printing a few pages out and reading those. In any case, I would say I have gotten a lot out of reading books on the computer, and even more out of watching movies on the computer! Even if these are not ideal conditions, they certainly get the job done. I have had many of my most insightful moments on a computer, as oppose to watching something on a big screen or reading from an actual book. Times are changing! (you old fogy).

oh, and make sure you do not get a Canterbury Tales that is translated in modern English, because it takes away from the poetry, notably the rhythm, of the text. i just recently bought a modern translation on accident because i was in a rush and found the General Prologue, as well as parts of the Miller's Tale to be terribly boring to read. i plan on reading them online, but you don't like that. just know that there is Old English, and then there is Middle English, if i am correct. Middle English is the version i will concern myself with because it is easier to read without getting rid of the rhythm and rhyme scheme Chaucer wrote: i could be wrong on this.

I know about this. Canterbury Tales is written in middle-english. There are plenty of copies out there that are in that with just some foot notes to explain when words are too archaic to be understandable. That's one that I plan to get. I've read The Miller's Tale in middle English and it is the silliest story.

Chekhov is AMAZING. I've just read Three Sisters and Uncle Vanya but both were exceptional, particularly the latter. His character dissections are unparalleled, definitely blows away the outdated Ibsen.

PS: your MUST lists are ridiculously long.

I actually went to a production of Ivanov (Tom Stoppard's translation) and it was goddamn amazing. It kind of reminded me of Cassavetes-- character dissection while also keeping anyone from being villainous or heroic and an odd mixture of comedy and tragedy constantly keeping you on your toes. I'm kind of hoping that that playhouse I went to does more Chekhov haha.
Still want to check out some Ibsen and Strindberg and stuff too. I AM A BIT BEHIND IN THIS DEPARTMENT. what translation of Chekhov's plays did you read?

PS: should I apologise for this? :c

My translations were done by Ann Dunnigan. I'm not sure how they hold up to other versions, but I had no trouble reading. He's a dense writer so I can see it being easy to go wrong, but she did a nice job. I wish I lived in a place where Chekhov, Kiarostami and Cassavetes were deemed worthy of being brought to the public. JEALZ.

PS: YES.

Duder, believe you me, if I was rich, I'd buy you a plane ticket to come over here to watch movies/plays with me and stuff. IT WOULD BE AWESOME. But I bet if you looked a bit, you could find a few good theatrical productions per-year nearabouts where you live.

PS: ;O; b'Awwwwwwwww

great short story/short fiction authors: Chekhov (Lady with the Pet Dog, and many others), Melville (The Piazza Tales: Bartleby, Benito Cereno), Hemingway (Nick Adams Stories, Indian Camp, Big Two-Hearted River), Garcia Marquez (i can only recommend A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings, but others have told me they like his short story collections rather than his novels), Poe (everything?), Faulkner (A Rose for Emily, Barn Burning, Spotted Horses, and others i am sure), Joyce (Dubliners: Eveline, Araby)...hmmm, i can't think of one woman to recommend???that is a problem--Chopin?, Gilman?, Gish Jen?, Flannery O'Conner is noted as being a good short fiction writer.

have you started on any of this ENORMOUS LIST!?

I have started on:
-Turn Of The Screw
-Othello
-Beyond Good And Evil
-Autobiography Of Red.

And I've thumbed through Montaigne's Essais and read several random shorter essays in there.

and THANKS FOR HELPING MAKE IT EVEN MORE ENORMOUS!!

I got William James' Pragmatism from the library, HIGHLY recommended. It's mind expansive.

I actually just pickd up a selection of his essays from a used bookstore (featuring "What Pragmatism Means" from that book and one or two essays from all of his other books)!

Cool that you're digging it!

I am having a bit of trouble reading anything denser than an instant message lately so it's giving me a trouble or two but it's pretty great so far (only have read one essay from it)

Double post.

DP

HOW SEXY

What would be the Derrida text to read if I wanted to get an idea regarding what he's about? (I figured I'd ask his biggest fan)

Anything that's not BY him. He is the worst writer. Just read things ABOUT his ideas. When others write about his ideas, they actually communicate them well and properly instead of just writing in prose so dense and so paradoxically purple and robotic at the same time.
Post Structuralist writing (that is, the writing, not the thought) can be summed up with: Writing for 50 pages what could have been explained just as well in 5.

Read Derrida for Beginngers. Great book.

Because I don't think your list is long enough, you should read The Mahabharata.

"The wise say that, for the sake of the family one can be abandoned, the family may be abandoned for the sake of the village, the village for the sake of the community; and everything, even this world, may be abandoned for the sake of saving the soul."

Doesn't have the same poetry (at least my translation, by Kamala Subramaniam) as the Iliad, but still incredible.

That is goddamn beautiful. Lord knows I need more ancient epics to read. Still slogging through the Bible.

I also recently started James's Pragmatism. It is neat and he can be funny sometimes.

I'm assuming (hoping) that you can access this through your school log in or whatever, because it's a really, really, really incredible interview.

It probably does but I don't know how to log into it. I should look into that. D:

most delayed response ever!

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=FADGCACF

i promise it isn't a virus.

I get scared of talking to people sometimes. ;o;

Also, thank you, you are awesome.

The opening essay in this book, titled "Ear Training" is really wonderful. The whole thing is on Google Books--worth reading.

You're always so damn charitable with these essays. Thanks man. :3

Ha, I just hope they're not boring you! Maybe I should slow down :3.

Sometimes it takes me forever to get around to reading them, but they're never boring. I just wish I had something to offer in return.
