We read to breath and to escape our reality.

Writers et al.

People profiled on this site are listed alphabetically in my attempt to be egalitarian.* I’ve divided them into five broad churches: (1) writers (2), poets (3), philosophers (4), psychologists and (5), political figures.

My writing

Four categories:

100’s
Short stories that are set out in no more and no less than 100 words.

Creative non-fiction
‘Til now, mostly stuff I’ve done for my undergraduate degree course.

Fiction
‘Til now, mostly stuff I’ve done for my undergraduate degree course.

Random rubbish*
My thoughts on what’s going on in the world and, I felt that ran-dom rub-bish was/is somehow a fitting title…

My book

The art of the process (procrastination // progress) can be monitored and tracked here: “Penitence”

Therapy; therapy of the baser kind.

Title Page
Like, say, Jackal and Hyde or Bonnie and Clyde.
Epigraph
Carpe Noctem.

Books

Book reviews are a form of literary criticism.* The books I review are those I read and/or hear are seminal. Reading, some say is, the best thing about being a human.

01. — Fiction 02. — Non-fiction

English Literature

English Literature refers to the study of texts written in the English language. English literature happens to be ‘my’ passion ((…nah, it’s ‘my’ Major!)) Okay! Let us say then, it is ‘our’ pastime-cum-vocation…

The English language
“Elizabethan era” / “Love letters”

END NOTES

* Book reviews defined
Book reviews can be of various modes and various lengths (from a single paragraph to a substantial essay). Short-form are those in which a book is merely described (also know as a ‘summary review’). Long-form are those in which a book is analysed based on content, style, and merit etc. A book review may be an opinion piece or scholarly review; it is a descriptive and critical/evaluative account and provides a summary of the content, assesses the value of the book (and will often recommend it (or not) to other potential readers). On the other hand, a book report is an attempt to write an objective summary of the main ideas and arguments that a given book’s author has set out.

* Random rubbish
Akin to digital distractions ( dig-it-al dis-tract-shones).
