October Wrap Up

October has been quite a busy month.  My English MA has officially started (a mixture of woo-hoo and ahhh); my first tutorial went really well. I was expecting it all to go over my head but I was able to keep up.  My freelancing is really starting to pick up too and I’m trying to get back into the habit of blogging regularly.  My favourite book from October has to be Antigone by Sophocles with How to Write Better Essays by Bryan Greetham as a close second.  I’m going to do a write up on Antigone later but if essays ever stress you out, I’d really recommend Greetham’s book.  I also managed to pick up a few bargains for my MA course over October pictured here:

Stephen King's Carrie, Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice, Oxford Dictionary of Literary Terms, Beginning Theory by Barry and Modern Literary Theory by Rice & Waugh

November’s reading list is already in progress. I started to listen to BBC Radio 4’s drama adaptation of Vasily Grossman’s Life and Fate (with the amazing Sir Kenneth Branagh and David Tennant) but I was so hooked I had to buy the book straightaway! I’ve replaced the drama adaptation Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki by Haruki Murakami. I’m also hoping to (finally) finish Parade’s End by Ford Madox Ford. The rest of my reading will be reading around the two Antigone’s.

Life and Fate, Parade's End, Intertextuality by Graham Allen, Antigone by Sophocles & Anouilh's version

So that’s my wrap up… What are you planning on reading this November?
