Buyer's Remorse

October 24, 2007

As a newly minted English Lit student, i have come to the painful realisation that i have bitten off more than i could chew. The sheer volume of the syllabus for a English Masters is frightening. I am not good at reading poetry and the curriculum contains a great deal of poetry. The last time i even thought about explain with reference to context was 9 years ago. And now i face whole papers full of them. Suddenly i wish i had gone the way of a Tamil MA instead of the english one ;-)

The first poems i am attempting to read are Milton's paradise lost book ix and Poe's The Raven. Wish me good luck dear constant reader, for i am in trouble of my own making.

Hi,
Your blog is bitchy and well written. And informative too.
As far as stock market is concerned. Trading requires insane amounts of money and stupidity. And more luck. Without these two, three factors, its impossible to trade.

You might as well read Raven. Have fun. (And dude, jealous. Eng Lit!)
