I am reading the biography and testament of Qazî Mihemed.Very interesting
Two new books arrived so I am reading them before getting back to my list-
An art book of Rubens w/ commentary-
A biography of Blake-
I will be going on vacation soon so I will bring Die Bibel & classical philosophy with me.
Working my way through Guenon's Symbols of Sacred Science at the moment. Waiting for Esoterism of Dante and de Benoist's View from the Right, Vol. I to arrive in the post.
Reread Cultivating Stillness: A Taoist Manual for Transforming Body and Mind.
Now I'm reading two simultaneously, namely Evola's Metaphysics of War alongside rereading Davidson's Myths and Symbols in Pagan Europe: Early Scandinavian and Celtic Religions. Some reading to prep for this summer's martial/physical training in order to further my aim of channeling in body and spirit my ancient Nordic barbarian ancestors.
Next I will likely pay the relatively high price tag to obtain Kershaw's The One-eyed God: Odin and the (Indo-) Germanic Männerbünde to fit in the general theme, perhaps also finally get around to reading Enright's Lady with a Mead Cup: Ritual, prophecy and lordship in the European warband from La Tene to the Viking Age.
Faust in German. I prefer the Hochdeutsch language to English probably because Goethe has shown me what can be done with it. If I could be anything it would probably be a poet in the German language. Perhaps that is something for my son to attain as opposed to me- realistically. Languages I would like to know would be Italian, German to a higher level, French, Sanskrit, Japanese, Mandarin and Swedish. I am unfortunately not bothered to learn them. Perhaps my son can learn at least some of them. For now while on vacation I will continue to read Goethe. On returning I will return to Greek tragedy, poesy and philosophia, Die Bibel nach Martin Luther im Deutschem Sprache, secondary material for Bhagavad Gita & Strindberg.
Just finished 'The Lord of the Rings' for the first time and currently reading and commenting the Dhammapada in our reading group with friends.
I am currently working through a few books, but mostly reading through The Tao of Seneca, Meditations, The Doctrine of Awakening, and The Religion & Philosophy of the Vedas and Upanishads.
Bought sämtliche Gedichte und Balladen von Schiller & will read them simultaneously together with Teil Zwei. Then more German poesy, Classical texts, Irish & USAmerican poesy, the Lutheran bible im Deutschem Sprache, Hume, Herrn Kant, Schopenhauer & Nietzsche, childrens' literature, south American poesy, French poesy, Strindberg, Dante, Bhagavad Gita and Sea of Fertility.
