The name's Steyn...

On authors and works in my recommended reading:

"...It's not clear to me that [Ian] Fleming is any less 'authentic' than, say, John Le Carre. Certainly, an organization such as SPECTRE seems more relevant to the present globalized alliances between jihadists, drug cartels, and freelance nuke salesmen than anything in The Russia House." --Mark Steyn

Katherine Mansfield, by Louise Bogan, The New Republic

Eric Hobsbawm and the Limits of Marxism, by Timothy Shenk, Dissent

Suppose Joseph Story Had Been Right and Brutus Had Been Wrong, by Alice M. Batchelder, Heritage Foundation

Falling in love with Love, by Helen Vendler, review of Vita Nova, by Dante Alighieri, translated by Andrew Frisardi, The New Republic

Sophocles, jargonized, review of Sophocles and the Language of Tragedy (Onassis Series in Hellenic Culture) by Simon Goldhill, The New Criterion
