At School Again

OK, so it has been quite a long time since I wrote here... The summer term started a week ago and I found out that I have even MORE subjects than I had in the winter term. I was really surprised by that but you know – I do not have many compulsory subjects but there are quite a lot of interesting lectures which I can attend optionally like Modern Hungarian Literature, Bible in the Modern Literature, Tragedy, Europe and Islam,...

And I go to work more often so I do not believe I am going to survive this half year.

I started reading Lolita by Nabokov (in English) – it is really exciting and quite difficult I have to say. Unfortunately I am not going to finish it because now I have to read Plato and Bible and Dante...

However surprisingly enough both Plato and Dante are enjoyable. Plato's Dialogues are very humorous, because Socrates, as a character, is often very ironic. Dante's (Divine) Comedy is full of poetic images and metaphors and is supposed to be ironic as well but I cannot appreciate it yet because the style is very complicated and you have to get used to it.
