Samir's Critical Corner

I love good writing. Samir's Critical Corner will have reviews on World Literature but you will also find reviews on various subjects like Mathematics or Tai Chi, and on specific niches like Nigerian writers.

South Sea Tales (Oxford World's Classics)

AA100 The Arts Past and Present - Tradition and Dissent (Book 2) - Carolyn Price Didn't like this one as much as the previous book. I wasn't interested in half the topics (or at least the angle from which they were approached) such as: Architecture, Chamber Music / Shostakovich, Dissent in Christianity... although, like any good textbook, I did gather interesting facts and insights form all the topics covered. I did, however, thoroughly enjoy the introductions to philosophy and poetry - felt like I officially covered a gap in my education :)
