The second stop on my queer literary adventure has been delightful! As much as Melmoth the Wanderer was a slog through meandering gothic horror, Joseph and His Friend, A Story of Pennsylvania, by Bayard Taylor is brimming with sweetness and romance.
Here are my final thoughts on Charles Maturin's "Melmoth the Wanderer" and a peek at the next stop on my queer literary adventure.
I'm still traveling with Melmoth, the Wanderer, even though my Goodread's profile is judging me.
It's a rainy Thursday afternoon, perfect for curling up with my pup, a cup of tea. Join me as I confront some body shame and ruminate on a queer appearance in "Melmoth the Wanderer."
What better way to end the first month of the year with the beginning of a queer literary journey through time from the 19th century to the present. It's worth exploring the past to experience the strength of our forebearers and to remember that love, and life (I can't believe I'm quoting Jurassic Park) will find a way.
