I taste a liquor never brewed – From Tankards scooped in Pearl – Not all the Frankfort BerriesYield such an Alcohol! Inebriate of air – am I – And Debauchee of Dew – Reeling – thro’ endless summer days – From inns of molten Blue –  When “Landlords” turn the drunken BeeOut of the Foxglove’s door – When Butterflies – renounce their “drams” – I shall but drink the more! Till Seraphs swing their snowy Hats – And Saints – to windows run – To see the little TipplerLeaning against the – Sun! – Emily Dickinson
“It is also then that I wish I believed in some sort of life after life, that in another universe, maybe on a small red planet where we have not legs but tails, where we paddle through the atmosphere like seals, where the air itself is sustenance, composed of trillions of molecules of protein and sugar and all one has to do is open one’s mouth and inhale in order to remain alive and healthy, maybe you two are there together, floating through the climate. Or maybe he is closer […]

The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt. – Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath (2000)

I just finished my reread of Lord of Shadows fifteen minutes ago and I scurried to get out the laptop because everything is so fresh in my mind. People ask me all the time what my ultimate favorite book is and honestly I can read all the big classics and the “must read before you die” books but honestly I think these books, this series, the sub-series and the whole chronicles collection are my favorite. As I’m rereading The Dark Artifices, I am falling in love with this fictional world […]

Synopsis This is Oscar Wilde’s tale of the […]

“Is it better for a man to have chosen evil than to have good imposed upon him?” ― Anthony Burgess, A Clockwork Orange
The main reason why I wanted to read A Clockwork Orange is firstly because its dystopian and I love reading dystopian novels and secondly because this book is often studied in schools and banned in them too! Just like Brave New World , this book is banned for multiple reasons, mainly for graphic violence and assault (I don’t blame ’em!), although I believe that no book can truly be banned, after all “Censorship is the child of fear and the father of ignorance.” and When you tear out a man’s tongue, you […]
