Three days, one book finished

I finally finished The Dialogic Imagination today. It made much more sense than the first time I tried reading it,* but I don't think I can say I understood 100% of what Bakhtin was talking about. Now that that is finished, I've decided to go watch The Chronicles of Narnia later this afternoon, but before then I hope to finish Ernesto Cardenal's Antología Poética, a nice little paperback that is (happily) a lot slimmer than the Bakhtin. That way I'll only be one day behind schedule...



*It helps that since then, I've read works by several authors who are cited as examples over and over — Cervantes, Lucian, whoever is responsible for Lazarillo de Tormes...
