    It might appear quaint in the 21st century world where TV and film have made advances in a range of genres but the novel remains distinct and special. The physical aspect of the novel is about the inter-relation between the words and the eye. The creation of the word inside the reader’s head is fundamental. All else fails by comparison. The immediacy of film - its drama is compelling without doubt a force to be reckoned with but the solitary nature of the connection between reader and language is without compare. You and me alone, together.
    Well said.

    Also, it seems I go blind after about 2 mins of white text on black.

    I will read this tomorrow, Jenks. Luka's giving it praise and I look forward to it. Maybe we can work up a literary spat, haven't had one of those for a while.

    luka - thanks for that.

    craner - I'd be interested in your thoughts...I dunno if I have the chops to get into a spat with you but I'll give it a go.

    a 3000 word analysis of culture-specific language items in the English translation of José Donoso's El obsceno pájaro de la noche.

    The short version: if you want to enjoy this book, learn spanish.

    its actually taken me three times as long to put together the bibliography and references than actually write the bloody thing.

    Sorry Droid - when I set the blog up it was never meant for a piece that long! Thanks for the positive comment.

    Thanks! I think the first three or four and number six are the best ones. I made myself laugh with Rector vs Spectre, too.

    Can't believe you've managed to keep this up Tea. Well done.

    I haven't been very productive lately.

    Did manage to finish this, long ruminated, piece about a bloke called Ted.
