30 - Greene/Blake/Greer

Germaine Greer. Dear John (1969). An unpublished essay/letter to John Gorton, which I couldn't even read. Very disappointed as I like Germaine Greer and have a great deal of respect for her, but I'm over this kind of essay. No more from this book for the moment! I understand the anger, but I don't feel it in the same way.

William Blake. The Tyger. 'Tyger! Tyger! burning bright/ in the forests of the night. An interesting poem, with some great rhythm and images, and also with intrigue.


Graham Greene. Alas, Poor Maling (1940). An hilarious story about a man's stomach doing impressions of noises it 'hears'.
