Re: I already got Kafka. I just haven't read him yet. Camilla Send a noteboard - 24/02/2011 09:32:33 AM
My "purchases" challenge has already failed miserably. I bought more Hesse, more Nietzsche and von Clausewitz. I was thinking about getting Zweig's Maria Stuart though I don't think of him as a "literary" writer, more of a writer along the lines of Druon - respectable but on the light side. I might get Venus im Pelz but that's really never been my thing (I do have the Pléiade edition of Sade, though, all three volumes).

I've also been tossing around the idea of buying Zola's Rougon-Macquart but I'm not sure if I'll like it or if I should get it. I'm also still waiting to get Rimbaud because I didn't order it directly from and the people obviously sent it on a tramp steamer making stops in Shanghai, Rio, Somalia and North Korea before making it here.

What do you think on the Zola, knowing what I like and what I don't?

Well, as I said in another post, I rather liked Au Bonheur des Dames, which is part of Rougon-Macquart, but I read it out of sequence -- I haven't read the series as a whole. . Zola is often paited as terribly depressing, but he provides more colour and fun there than in, say Germinal, which is also R-M, I think. His language will be much simpler than Flaubert.

I think the movie needs to be discussed because almost everyone has seen it or heard of it. - 23/02/2011 05:30:27 PM 940 Views
