Some reading bits and pieces

Here are a couple of interesting reading lists and links I’ve picked up over the last little while.

1. Literary devils. This ranks the devil (you know, Satan, embodied evil) as portrayed in literature by relative fearsomeness. I find Lewis’s demon much less laughable than the author does.

2. Reading in the Renaissance. This is a pretty cool post. It has a description of the Renaissance scholar’s study from the period. It is kind of a how-to of having a study and being a scholar. Really interesting.

What about you? Anything interesting out there in the world of book?

  1. Both lists are quite brilliant really. The latter especially useful. Thanks for linking them.
