    The Thirty Years War story wasn't something by Henty was it? Any memory of where the novel about the dog liberation man was set?

    Since many Americans consider a national health service an example of communism I can never take seriously any of their comments on this issue. Capitalism has its ups and downs. Regulations are as...
  3. Now Ennison how much of THAT is tongue-in-cheek?...

    Now Ennison how much of THAT is tongue-in-cheek? I agree though that it is a good piece of work. He wrote best when he was succinct.

    Many of my friends read. Many don't. Some only read newspapers. No one has ever accused me of being a snob for being a reader. (They wouldn't dare) Some friends have borrowed books and some have...

    The fellow who collated this list did the site a service but he seems to have left us some time ago? Did this list replace an earlier one? The Bible is an anthology and perhaps he should have said...

    I doubt you'll get help here with these vague memories Ennison. Surely that journalist fellow had his tongue in his cheek when he gave his novel that title.

    "Far... far"! I've always seen you as being positioned where extremes meet Ennison. I guess the imagination of the readers is liberated by the writer but the writer herself must be at times, during...

    Pip was not intended to be a great human being. Dickens shows us flaws as well as qualities. The fact that the reader finds him both sympathetic and unsympathetic is one of the ways that the novel...

    Because literature outside of communist states has no duty to lead. It exists for itself and its main purpose is entertainment.

    Me neither. What has your mental filing system mislaid? Or are there too many to mention?

    Would you consider Airidh Innes Ranish a house Ennison?

    Cathartic rants are a tree mendous release ain't they. Teachers have to make sensible judgements based on who sits in front of them and the population served by the school. It's ok for me to call...

    In the case of the speaker in that poem the associations arise in an uncontrollable way as they do for ourselves. Allusion for the creative writer may be simply to show off as someone says (That...

    It is also part of the show-don't-tell of fiction. Since you have mentioned Lee (by allusion) Ennison you may recall that on the first page (I think it was) of that text, the writer states that her ...

    I think what I was saying was that Mr Vidal might appear to be progressive but Buckley was the better man. His outburst against Vidal (allegedly punched by Mailer) was out of character. But yes he...

    *****y would do Ennison. Some English writer or other called Vidal's work meretricious. I would agree with that. Buckley was no form of Nazi whatsoever so it wasn't surprising he got angry when Vidal...

    Brit-Nat socialist... Like it Ennison. Do you mean the anti-Corbyn Blairite types? The we-gotta-have-a-big-bomb-too fellahs? But would he really be like them I wonder if he was here today? Nah. He...

    The things they make you do eh! How long have you got for this? You could try the twin novels Kidnapped and Catriona. Kidnapped needs the second novel as it picks up the narrative where Kidnapped...

    Why "strangely"? I would suggest Dickens' dialogue is realistic even if he does employ it at times for caricature.
