In the end I ended up picking up Homer again while I wait for a book of Novalis' collected works to arrive [in German.] I also have my eyes on a book about German Romanticism. I mentioned Charles Lutwidge Dodgson's Alice a few posts ago. I plan on reading Sylvie and Bruno some day, a some what lesser known of his works. Still waiting on a book about the influence of Ancient Greek culture on Richard Wagner's Ring cycle.
