it was ok
bookshelves: 1900-1969
Read in February, 2015

Somehow, this week's graduate seminar on Chekhov and, like, feelz, man, devolved into a discussion of how Girls does today what Raymond Williams thinks Chekhov did with The Cherry Orchard. Sort of.

It was actually pretty interesting. Would have been moreso, probably, if I understood drama-that's-not-Shakespeare. But I'm a dum-dum/just-not-a-drama-kid. So yeah. I don't get you, Anton, and I don't get you, drama kids. I wish I did. You seem so cool, and your sex lives, while unattached anyway, are probably better than the sex lives of those of us with our heads buried in Melville and Pynchon in some dreary reading room filled with pretty old books gathering dust cuz scholars read on Kindles, now.
