Night 28: 9th August 2013

Essay
David Hume. Of Tragedy. Contemplations on why we enjoy tragedies, and why the more horrifying/ frightening they are, the more we enjoy them.

Poem
Charles Lamb. On An Infant Dying As Soon As Born. Sad reflections on a baby dying soon after birth.


Story
Graham Greene. Proof Positive (1930). A very strange story indeed with a totally unexpected twist at the end. Very sombre in mood.
