Into the Blogosphere

Into the Blogosphere

After previous trysts with blogging, tweeting and all manner of odd, online publishing experiments, it’s once again time for me to enter the fray. Although it would be nice to avoid cliché so early on, my gut tells me this blog is going to be different, just like every other blogger out there since time immemorial. Not only will I post regularly and build the blog out through sensible linking, but I’ ll also stay focused on the blog’s subject: my adventures through the world of literature to decipher the role of literature to the contemporary reader.

So here it is, Verso-recto, a sojourn around the kingdom the written word. A back to front exploration through the world of words, the glories of Recto-Verso printing, and the halcyon dreams of writers past and present. I will stumble at times, I will lose perspicuity, and I might never touch on the hallowed ground of perspicaciousness. But let those future failures not cloud this beginning, as I step onward to explore that cherished blessing of  culture that is literature. The written word awaits.
