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 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.
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 Classical texts.

Faerie Queene. Each book represents an Aristotelian virtue. His inspirations were Homer Plato Aristotle and Virgil whom I will return to as well as Dodgson and Berkeley.
Thought Id start this up again.
