All Hallows Read, pt. 2

October 4th, 2017

Continuing on from earlier. Villiers de l’Isle-Adam’s “A Torture by Hope” (1891) and the Erckmann-Chatrian piece “L’Oreille de la chouette”/”The Owl’s Ear” (1860) down, along with Charlotte Perkins Stetson (later Gilman)’s peculiar The Yellow Wall Paper (1892) (for the curious, see also her “Why I Wrote The Yellow Wall-Paper: “It was not intended to drive people crazy, but to save people from being driven crazy, and it worked.”) this morning. This afternoon, Prosper Mérimée’s “The Venus of Ille” (1887) and Walter de la Mare’s “All Hallows” (1926). What next?

As an aside, I learned something while reading “The Venus of Ille”: “[…] you are a thinker and no longer notice women.”—If that’s a requirement, I’m apparently not a very good thinker!
