Les barbares qui assassinent le goût

Mais soyons clairs : le roman s'empara de tout le terrain disponible, et ce fut une des plus grandioses opérations commerciales de l'histoire récente. - L'Ame de Hegel et les vaches du Wisconsin - Alessandro Baricco - Livres.

What does your bookshelf say about you?

A lifelong reader myself, I've always had an obsession with seeing a person's bookshelf, to get a sense of what they've brought inside their home and their head.

Prediction is a dangerous game. Not only is it difficult in foresight and easy in hindsight, but it also carries the possibility that you’ll be completely and utterly wrong. THE SIXTH WAVE makes a very bold prediction indeed. It predicts the next wave of innovation. The act of predicting the future does have some advantages, whether you’re right or not.

Predictions give you something to test your ideas against and can put some of the big and little things you see every day into a broader context. Humanities Good Reads.

Plays by William Shakespeare. Les livres de l'année que nous avons préférés. Xmas reading list. An Essay on Criticism. 'Tis hard to say, if greater Want of Skill Appear in Writing or in Judging ill, But, of the two, less dang'rous is th' Offence, To tire our Patience, than mis-lead our Sense: Some few in that, but Numbers err in this, Ten Censure wrong for one who Writes amiss; A Fool might once himself alone expose, Now One in Verse makes many more in Prose. 'Tis with our Judgments as our Watches, none Go just alike, yet each believes his own. In Poets as true Genius is but rare, True Taste as seldom is the Critick's Share; Both must alike from Heav'n derive their Light, These born to Judge, as well as those to Write.

Let such teach others who themselves excell, And censure freely who have written well. Authors are partial to their Wit, 'tis true, But are not Criticks to their Judgment too? Yet if we look more closely, we shall find Most have the Seeds of Judgment in their Mind; Nature affords at least a glimm'ring Light; The Lines, tho' touch'd but faintly, are drawn right.

Thee, bold Longinus!
