Calling Uncle (again) - Temporarily Repealed

I was convinced to keep plugging away at these two.

 

 

Eugene Oneguine [Onegin] - A Romance of Russian Life in Verse - Aleksandr Sergeevich Pushkin

 

The poetry in Eugene is difficult for me.

 

As far as I can tell, he's a snobby party hound.

 

 

 

 

The Picture of Dorian Gray (Dover Thrift Editions) - Oscar Wilde

The characters in A picture of Dorian Gray have to be the most annoying I've ever come across.

 

Whiny, self centered, shallow.

 

So far, Lord Henry's uncle is the only character I haven't wanted to slap.
