Hi guys! It’s been a fortnight since I posted one of these and it wasn’t because I hadn’t read anything but because I forgot. Sorry about that! Anyways, here we are with everything I read over the last two weeks instead.
Entertaining Mr Sloane by Joe Orton
What a messed up brilliant piece this was! I had a lot of fun reading and analysing this one because it was such an interesting piece. I’d love to this performed just to see how it would come together on a stage.
The Passion of New Eve by Angela Carter
As weird as a read this was, I somehow really enjoyed it. I quite liked the way Carter weaved this chaotic world and used it as a platform to rewrite Eve. Honestly, it was great! I went into it believing I’d hate it and came out having enjoyed it.
The Wasteland by T.S. Eliot
I finally tackled this piece. It isn’t the longest piece of poetry I’ve read but it does rank amongst some of the most difficult to understand. That being said it was an interesting read. I quite liked some of the imageries Eliot used but I did have to look up some of the allusions because they escaped me. Still, it’s a fascinating piece.
