Tam Lin

by Pamela Dean

Grade: All right

There was a lot of talk about contraception and stuff. Quite feminist. And the last eighth of the book was quite drastically different than all the rest.

But the literature stuff! Was awesome! E. Nesbit, Madeleine L'Engle, Tommy and Tuppence, "That Hideous Strength", "There was a boy named Eustace Clarence Scrubb, and he almost deserved it.", rephrased Chesterton quote...
I love it.
Plus there's all the Greek stuff and Keats and poetic stuff I haven't studied enough to be familiar with.

So it could be "To Own", so that when I learn about things, I can read this book again and understand more. Plus it's a good Shakespeare resource.
But ONLY for those reasons.
