    Well said, Manichean. Perhaps Shelley himself expressed his optimism (and his faith in poetry) best in the closing lines of his most famous poem,...

    It seems to me that Ozymandias is about four different story-tellers. There is the poet ("I" in the poem); there is the traveler who tells the story;...

    Oh my gosh, I haven't been here in a few months. Thank you for the birthday wishes. I'm sorry I didn't see it until now. I hope things are well with you Aunty. And you're still young at heart. I do miss our conversations, but I just don't have the time for Lit Net any more. And frankly I've gotten out of the habit of checking here, so when I do have the time it never occurs to me. God bless.

    Hi... thanks for voting in the 2015 Annual Short Story Competition finals.
    I submitted one of my stories "Happy Endings" into the contest.

    Critiques here on litnet have always been greatly helpful and helped me improve a lot. As you have already read the story, I was wondering if you could share your thoughts on the story on this thread->

    Sorry to bother you. Thanks for reading the message.

    Would you like to vote in our short story competition final?

  7. Nice one! of course the ultra conservatives have reclaimed "liberal" by sticking "neo" in front of it. Thus, "neoliberal" now means what every good republican believes is Truth, Justice and the American way: a free-market unaccountable corporate democracy for the super-wealthy, allowing them to become extra-super-wealthy at the expense of everyone else! Since my student status expired at the end of September, I no longer have full access to the NYRB, but I have a sneaking suspicion that I may have read this piece when we did Waiting for Godot. Unfortunately, I don't seem to have downloaded it, so this time round I only got to read the first bit which you linked to. HI ho. I'm going to have to see if my alumni status will allow me to continue plundering the university resources. Live and be swell - H
  8. Thank'ee, Auntie. Glad to hear you're on the case good ol' Pen got with the programme fairly promptly, but I'll try and Jivvy up some further participation. Finding people up to the task is going to be the tricky bit!
  9. Hi, Auntie! This 'ere be a formal invitation for you to come out and play This should be right up your street!
  10. Coming soon to a short story thread near you - Doom Town, the finale!
