reading location

It won't stop raining here in South Korea. Flooding etc. Heavy rain for almost seven days and nights. Non-stop. In other news irony is finding its way into Wonderland. Or maybe it's a little wit.

Walter Benjamin (Reflections)

Jonathan Williams (selected poems)

Tolstoy (Resurrection)

Art of the 20th Century (2 volume set by Taschen)

Kenzaburo Oe (The Silent Scream)

Rene Char (Selected Poems)

However, this hospitality has never extended to Irish poets w…
