Today in Literature

January 29, 2009

29 January 1860: Internationally loved author and playwright Anton Chekhov was born.  He is perhaps best known as a dramatist, but his formal innovations in the short-story form–he is credited with early jaunts into stream-of-consciousness writing–worked to alter the shape of modernism.

A good upbringing means not that you won’t spill sauce on the tablecloth, but that you won’t notice it when someone else does.

    OK, this has nothing to do with today in literature, but I just noticed that you’re getting to read To Kill a Mockingbird FOR CLASS! No fair! I love that novel, and you get to have all the fun and call it work! 🙂

    We finished our two-class TKAM session. It was wonderful and after sifting through the criticism, I’ll certainly never be able to read it the same way again.
