I'm reading a collection of Steinbeck short stories before I go back to rereading Ovid. I finished The Moon is Down today and I really really liked it. Probably my favorite of the four I've read so far. Just Cannery Row and The Pearl left; so far CR in a way feels a little bit like a retelling of Tortilla Flat. I'm only thirty pages in so it has room to grow but the whole aesthetic of it definitely gives me that feeling. It must just be something related to the Great Depression in general, I'd suppose.
Anyway picrel is my stack of Greek/Roman shit to fill out the holes in-between Homer and Virgil. I'm excited to get to it after I finish studying the Metamorphoses a bit more.
