Love and scandal are the best sweeteners of tea. —Henry Fielding

Read, Read, Read

I am currently working on my reading lists for my comprehensive exams. This means that I spend as much of my free time as I can bear reading.

So far, i.e. since May 1st, I have read:
Haskell M. Block's Mallarmé and the Symbolist Drama
Daniel Gerould's anthology Symbolist Drama
John A. Henderson's The First Avant-garde (1887-1894)
Frantz Fanon's The Wretched of the Earth
and
Benedict Anderson's Imagined Communities

It should go without saying that I am really not reading quickly enough. If I am going to be ready to go in the Fall I need to get on this.
