I have been rather busy of late, what with soccer, lawn mowing duites, and my mother visiting I haven’t had much time to read or post. Content has been a bit down, but crunchy goodness is in the works my friends. Tonight I will leave you with this quote from George Orwell on Joseph Conrad:
At Present Conrad is out of favor, ostensibly because of his florid style and redundant adjectives (for my part I like florid style: if your motto is “Cut out the adjectives”, why not go a bit further and revert to a system of grunts and squeals, like the animals?), but actually, I suspect because he was a gentleman, a type hated by modern intelligentsia. He is certain to come back in favor. One of the surest signs of his genius is that women dislike his books.
