Books! (Crime and Poetry Edition)

The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories Part I (Ed. David Marcum, 2017/#87): A collection of Holmesian pastiches; some attempts at formal innovation, slight parody, or unusual points of view, but generally speaking it aims for straightforward new adventures in the classical style, and often successfully. The quality is uneven, but overall, it was an enjoyable read.

The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories Part II (Ed. David Marcum, 2017/#88): See above.

The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories Part III (Ed. David Marcum, 2017/#89): See above.

The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories Part IV (Ed. David Marcum, 2017/#90): See above.

Duino Elegies and The Sonnets to Orpheus (Rainer Maria Rilke, tr. A. Poulin Jr., 2017/#91): Not unproblematic — and, overall, it's not my metaphysics — but with many beautiful turns of phrase, and even of thought. But do note [personal profile] ratcreature's observations about the translation.

Hamlet: Poem Unlimited (Harold Bloom, 2017/#92): A short compilation of somewhat disjointed comments of Bloom on Hamlet, as a sort of companion to the Hamlet chapter of his Shakespeare: The Invention of the Human. He has changed some of views, but marginally; by and large, not much new.
