This is one of those books that I just don't connect with. There are several books that I have seen on classic lists that I just wonder and wonder about. This is one of them for me (along with Robinson Crusoe). I have read both of them a couple of times and still don't connect. But I have learned a couple of more things from the rereading of this book. I do have to say that I need Mentoring the Classics (TJEd.org) to help me through seeing this better. I don't know that I understand the author's point. However, I looked up several of the poems to find what they were referring to and took more notes. Maybe there is more to this then I think. Maybe because I am not from the culture it was written in I am missing out on the clues that I need to figure it out.
