Going Deep with George

The brilliant George Eliot VOGUE-ing

"That element of tragedy which lies in the very fact of frequency, has not yet wrought itself into the coarse emotion of mankind; and perhaps our frames could hardly bear much of it. If we had a keen vision and feeling of all ordinary human life, it would be like hearing the grass grow and the squirrel’s heart beat, and we should die of that roar which lies on the other side of silence. As it is, the quickest of us walk about well wadded with stupidity." ---- George Eliot


  1. Deeeeeep stuff. I can't wait to read next meeting's materials. Historiography's hindering me from (leisurely)reading.

  2. You've said it... I like what we're reading for Western after all the periods...Anyway,I'm having incredible problems with Historiography. :| NO TOPIC!
