I studied Basho at university and loved his stuff, so I was glad to get back to it. My only complaint is that they could have got more haiku on the pages, which were a little bare.

Virginia Woolf – Liberty | Review

Considering that I didn’t much enjoy my first introduction to Virginia Woolf, when I had to read Mrs Dalloway in a week for university, I was quite impressed here. I also thought it was fascinating purely because of the subject matter.

This is basically Woolf writing about the place that women have held in literature throughout history. That’s why it’s so interesting. She also examines her own place in that history, and that takes on a new sense of irony when you read it today as a modern reader. It’s also a good introduction to her range and it made me want to read more.
