Catch Up

Haven't felt very bloggish these past few days, it sometimes strikes me as being overly vain. The reading of Magic Mountain has contued and I attempted to post on it yesterday but it was my virgin experience of having a blogspot Macbethed. The sections read this week are seminal, the viewing of the film in the village by Hans, Joachim and the invalid is stunning on par with a similar situation in Nabokov's Mary. The subsequent event of the Carnival is beyond expectation as is the debate between Hans and Settembrini and the courting of the Russian nymph.

An aphorism of Nietzsche's about preserving the majority of one's day has been on my mind throughout the week.
