i-capture-the-castleReview of the Month: I Capture the Castle

I’ve decided to start off my Link Love posts by highlighting a favorite review I’ve found elsewhere. This month it’s an insightful post about I Capture the Castle at the blog majoring in literature. Like all the best reviews, it makes me want to read this favorite classic all over again!

Here are some of my other favorite posts and articles this month:

Language matters

  • A spelling maven examines the language of Blackadder for accuracy — or lack thereof — at the Oxford Words blog.
  • From NPR comes an enlightening history of the book blurb. (Did you know that Walt Whitman, king of self-promotion, was the first to print one on Leaves of Grass — on the spine, no less?)
  • The author of the new book The Wolf Wilder takes a look at wolves in literature, for The Telegraph.

  1. Thank you for the links. I will check some them out over the next several days.

    I had already read the NPR pice on book blurbs. It is really interesting stuff.

    • Kat

      Great links! It’s always fun to discover new places on the internet.k I loved the I Capture the Castle review, and the cartoon of Zola is hysterical!

      • Oops, the below was meant to be my response to Brian. (Though it applies to you as well!) Be sure to check out the source for the Zola cartoon, there are even more hilarious caricatures.

  2. Love that review of I Capture the Castle! What a great book. I have cunningly managed to hook a couple of people on that book by leaving it on their bedside table when they visit me. Mwahahahahaha. 😀

  3. Thank you, Lory, for including me in this fabulous list! I am really excited to read all of these. You do such a nice job at finding interesting articles and posts.

    • Thank you, Wendy. I really enjoyed your piece and all the others that came my way this month — I’m happy to share them.

  4. Thanks so much for linking to my post, Lory! I really enjoyed this list, particularly the article about language in Blackadder. 😀
