Sorry! I've been away in Big London doing work stuff ... Read Ackroyd's Poe: A Life Cut Short which was, you know, fine... A compelling enough read, for sure, but I got little sense of Poe as writer -- and I didn't buy Ackroyd's contention that he wasn't an alcoholic either. Good introductory overview to the man, however.
Reading Sherman Young's The Book Is Dead (Long Live the Book) at the moment -- more about this anon. Also reading On Aristotle and Greek Tragedy (out of print, I'm afraid, but fairly easy to get hold of) by John Jones for a paper I'm writing on poetics. Jones is very good at getting us to see beyond Shakespearian stereotypes and to help us to attend to the "otherness" of Greek drama.
