I’m Back

I know, I know, it’s been a while. I do apologize for that–hopefully post-less times like this will be infrequent, if not nonexistent, in the future. In my defense, I have been incredibly busy, finishing up (most) of my school (math and spanish just won’t The Complete Stories of Flannery O'Connorgo away), and traveling a good bit as well.

So yes, for that I apologize. However, the good news is that I have some books coming my way that should be fun to review. I’m also excited for several of the films coming out this summer, so I’ll be able to do reviews on those. In the immediate future, though, I have something that will, hopefully, be enjoyable.

I received a collection of all of Flannery O’Connor’s short stories a few days ago, and I’ve begun reading them. Needless to say, they’re amazing. I intend to blog through them, trying to discern exactly what she’s saying in each of them–or at the very least, to speculate as to their meanings. Tomorrow I’ll post a short biography of her before jumping into the first story entitled “The Geranium.”

I’m particularly excited for this because the stories are arranged chronologically. It should be fascinating to see her writing develop thematically, structurally, and even technically. That’s what will be coming up continually, and in addition I will be posting individual reviews of various books and films, as well as thoughts regarding stories that occur to me.

To summarize, hopefully everything will go back to normal now. So, with that out of the way, let’s move on to the real posts. I’ll see you all tomorrow for the first one.
