Renascence is not a poem; it is an experiencel I knew I loved Edna Saint Vincent Millay; I just didn't know how much. I knew that she was the first woman to win a Pulitzer prize for poetry. Yet each time I read her poems, they are new, and they stir up even deeper emotions within me. I posted this on 05 March 2010

A Modest Proposal finished
Modest indeedl I had read this many years ago, so it did not shock me. However, it surely must have gotten through to readers when it was first published. Very clever and appropritate to critique with blatant satire. This must have rubbed some consciences raw, as it was designed to do. I posted this on 23 April 2009
A Doll's House finished
Very appropriate title 'Twas insightful and revealing. I appreciated it for the understanding it portayed of the culture, and subtle opression of woman's intellect and value. It was also entertaining tho a bit quaint. It painted a vivid picture of the times. I enjoyed it and was very entertained. I posted this on 20 April 2009

More from Christiana: On Flaubert's 3 short stories: Diabolical, depressing, almost (but not quite) divine. Thank God for God!!!
Marvelous! Moving! Magnificent!!!
The Holy Bible, ofcourse.
This book is indispensable and must be read and re-read by every thinking person on the planet.
Good helpful list.
Uh huh, sounds like my life exactly.
What's not to love about this book. I suppose it is considered a children's classic; yet it will warm the heart of anyone who reads it - 9 to 90. A very rewarding read.
I knew I loved Edna Saint Vincent Millay; I just didn't know how much. I knew that she was the first woman to win a Pulitzer prize for poetry. Yet each time I read her poems, they are new, and they stir up even deeper emotions within me.
Splendid, moving, graphic, they rend life's breath.
Sad and simple, but sounds authentic. Raw and graphic but in a very decent and eloquent way. Well worth reading.
pre-school to 1st grade level
Amusing, yet moving insight on a by-gone (?) culture
This book was very rewarding and I paid close attention to it. I began to seek these works to read and I purchased some; I intend to find others that were included as well.
Stupendous! Very worthy and interesting. Also the pictures are phenomenal!
Extremely important. Everyone should read - more than once!
I love all the works of this author. This book is mighty and magnificent as it portrays the depths of human emotion. An enduring treasure.
Splendid! So very fine. I was entranced.
Good recipes. Yum yum.
He was a true original and in his day, shocking. The magic of his poetic lines lives on. "Annabelle Lee" is my favorite of all his works.
Revealing, touching, well written.
An engaging view of lives of a people and a culture that are "gone with the wind." So vividly written by this gifted author - no wonder she has endured! I plan to read every book she's ever written.
Informative, educational, and entertaining to the utmost. You can skim over lightly, or probe in depth.
Splendid! Wordy, with flowery speech; while still managing to be profound.
Most of these are splendid; a few are not so much. I am thoroughly enjoying them.
One of those books you know you must read and once you start to read it, you know why you must read it. A work of art.
I wish I had more hours in my day to explore all this thoroughly. Very worthwhile. I took Psych in school but this is far more interesting.
Short but not short enough. I won't give up on this author - not yet.
Should be read by everyone who can read.
Heartfelt and powerful. Shocking, sad, tender. A stupendous read.
So pure and so sweet.
Thus I dare not delete.
Lying in fields of clover.
Reading them over and over.
It was boring and a waste of time, and that's no lie
I found it to be boring, and not worth reading.
I had read this many years ago, so it did not shock me. However, it surely must have gotten through to readers when it was first published. Very clever and appropritate to critique with blatant satire. This must have rubbed some consciences raw, as it was designed to do.
The book I quote from most often is "The Holy Bible," the most wonderful and complete book ever written, about the only Perfect Person who ever lived: The Lord Jesus Christ. If anyone is not familiar with this book, I suggest you start with the Gospel of John in the New Testament. It is probably the best way to get to know the Author. Read Proverbs and James for practical advice on daily living. Read the entire New Testament before the Old Testament, and may God bless you richly.
Well written, I guess, but bleak and hopeless. After the initial shock, it's down hill the rest of the way. Just not my cup of tea, (or, should I say, "poison."
Very enjoyable and inspiring.
Having read this little story many years ago, I knew it was tender and sweet. I intend to share it w some children when Christmas 09 draws nigh. Incidentally, I am a great fan of DailyLit!!!

It is such a very fine opportunity to read such stupendous literature on line free!
It was so moving and so powerful that I completed it in one sitting, pausing only to eat and drink. Fabulous book!
