Richard Ellmann – The Trial of Oscar Wilde [REVIEW]

This was a fascinating non-fiction account of what happened at Oscar Wilde’s trial, and while I thought that I knew roughly what had happened, there was plenty here that I didn’t know about.

It’s also an excerpt from a longer book and so I should probably pick that up at some point. Ellmann is a talented researcher and writer and he made the complexities of law more approachable.

Rattle – Issue #81 [REVIEW]

Title: Issue #81

This is the latest instalment of Rattle’s literary magazine, and it’s just as enjoyable as the last one. I only actually have it because I submitted some work to them, but I’m glad that I did. They’re publishing exactly the kind of modern, free verse poetry that I like to read.

Is it perfect? No. There are plenty of poems that flop for me, but that’s the beauty of reading poetry. I think there’s a little something here for everybody, and so if you’re into poetry then go check it out.
