Daily Thoughts 5/8/2011
I have been reading The Crippled God this morning by Steven Erikson. The chatpers beginnings have poetry. He also separates the lands of the gods and heros which have a dreamy quality to them from the every day world in his fantasy by using ornate writing with the quality of lucid dreams. I could read the sections with the character Karsa Orlong by themselves.
I also read some more of A Portrait of the Artist at a Young Man by James Joyce. I am beginning to understand why there are book clubs that are solely focused on Joyce. I like the themes of sin and forgiveness in the novel.
