Hello, writers world. Well, here we go. I have been writing for some time now, but not as entirely coherent stories, and that is truly unfortunate, and truthfully, it matters not at all, for the point is to create and create and on and on and put the fragments together to create a whole, if that is the way one works; I work this way, and find this form of authorship a means to creating into infinity, a very minute infinity.
I began reading Middlemarch, by Madame George Eliot for the second time, a few weeks past, and then put it down for the second time, but alas! I entered a little deeper into the story than when I first attempted a read; it is pleasant, yes, and nice - but, you see, perhaps it is due to my constitution, that after reading and frolicking in the style and the intricate and maddening detail of Fyodor Dostoevsky's Demons (translated by Pevear and Volokhonsky - what a great team! and they have translated Gogol as well!), the delightful methodology of Eliot's prose was perhaps too blissful for my taste - and make no mistake, I look forward to reading her novel thoroughly, but, you will have to make me - and I would be pleased if you did so.
Meanwhile, Nietzsche has caught my attention, and, following the translations and method of careful interpretation by Walter Kaufmann (who had a very nice career during WWII, and did much, afterward, as a teacher and tireless translator, to further the understanding of existentialism and controversial philosophers - e.g. Nietzsche). I have never been happier with a text than while reading Nietzsche, thus far, but I cannot go into detail, for that requires more concentration than I have the ability to stand at this time.
What is nice about that German philosopher is that reading his work not only carves new pathways into my brain (I have read only a minor part of his work), but I also find him very, and clearly, easy to disagree with where I do.
