Time to finish-up my tour with Hegel:

Lectures on the Philosophy of Religion: One-Volume Edition: The Lectures of 1827 by G.W.F. Hegel

Image

After this, I'll hafta decide whether to proceed genealogically with Marx or proceed chronologically with Schopenhauer. Prolly will end up going genealogically and go with Schopenhauer afterwards.

Finished Pearl S. Buck's The Good Earth, which surprised me as a compelling read on the struggles of a farming family to succeed. There is sexism against female offspring, alas, but otherwise an enjoyable read, and I think an honest accounting of life in 20th Century China before the Communist revolution.

I've just started reading Mary Shelley's Frankenstein.

Ah, a real classic. :D

I found the Kenneth Branagh movie a very good, and relatively "true" filmic version of it.

I will have to check it out sometime! I have only seen two of KB's movies, the Shakespeare-based Henry V and Much Ado About Nothing, but liked both of them. (I will wait until I finish the book, though.)

Well, definitely recommended. (And I loved Much Ado......My grandmother dragged a very reluctant young me to go and watch it, and I ended up laughing my ass off. :D )
