Sometimes I wonder about the culture-pages here in Sweden. Read a review about William Blake...
So many words saying so little.
It makes me a bit sad, and of course a bit "notsobuddha-happy", you know, I sometimes blame the culture-snobs for being those who scare people away from reading. They sometimes gives the impression (maybe not intentionally, what do I know...) that reading is hard work and that feelings must be dissected in every aspect.
That has nothing do with reading to me, reading is easy, it's fun, it's the simple way to enter a world that is not mine. Reading is not competing with coming up with most metaphors.
You don't have to ask for someone else's opinion about what you read, if you like it, it is good. If not, it isn't, even if millions of critics says "this is the shit."
It's just that simple. Right?
