Great Books

from Gregd - Wednesday, February 04, 2004

Two great books that helped me think for myself.

'One flew over the cookcoos nest' - and the play "the crucible". As you read you can substitute different characters for family members.

It also helped me to realize how bad the family novels are. I knew they were bad but after reading "one flew..." they became painful. I remember reading one by Shakespear and I had to stop because it was so obviously not Shakspear.

"I remember reading one by Shakespeare and I had to stop because it was so obviously not Shakespeare."

Ahhahahahahahahahahaha. Remember how completely-alive Art Linklater spoke to them from beyond the grave? Their "Shakespeare" is pretty much on par with that.

Not to forget my all time favorite: "The miracle cheeseburger!"

For great books, easily my all time favorite is "The Peloponnesian War" by Thucydides. Ive lost track of the number of times Ive read it. The book is stunningly clever and spectacularly well written. Its one of the earliest Western literary works, and ironically, possibly the best.

Thucydides is a god. I think I will have to start some kind of religion worshiping him, as well as his "only begotten son" Machiavelli. Machiavelli is doubtless some partial reincarnation of Thucydides, though he deserves homage in his own right particularly for his "Discourses on Livy."

To them be glory for ever (and ever)!! Amen?(reply to this comment

They had the nerve to write a novel and accredit it to Shakespeare? I wonder if that implies legal contravention? I mean, if I was the descendent of a dead Literary master ,would I want my family legacy sullied by the inept ramblings of an inane sex cult? Maybe we should try and contact the living descendents of shakespeare and see if legal action should be pending!

I read both of those in high school. They are great books, "Cuckoo's nest" is one of my favorite.
