Tempting Persephone

Tempting Persephone

"The masters of information have forgotten about poetry, where words may have a meaning quite different from what the lexicon says, where the metaphoric spark is always one jump ahead of the decoding function, where another, unforeseen reading is always possible."
— J.M. Coetzee

"She started reading. She didn’t mean to spend long at it, but soon she was devouring every word, oblivious to the creaking old home and the rain outside."
-Derek Landy, Skulduggery Pleasant (via thebooker)
