An Itch

I have been spending an inordinate amount of time reading and pondering the reading resolutions of others. My hopes for the year are to reread Tolstoy and count down the days until the new Pynchon.

I read the introduction to a collection of Polish Postwar poetry today by Milosz. I think i may browse through such and return to the Yetuvschenko soon. I have been pondering Mill on the Floss as of late as well.

Oddly enough, rereading War and Peace was a resolution I left off my list for 2009--though I think it's likely to happen regardless. The Pevear and Volokhnsky translation is looming on my shelf, and it's been six years since I last read the novel. But if I'm going to justify reading it again, maybe I need to pair that with reading some Tolstoy I've not yet read--more of the letters, and maybe The Kreutzer Sonata?

Ultimately, though, it's not like you can possibly go wrong by deciding to read Tolstoy, right?
