I am not as stressed today, because I have been making progress. This progress is happening because I'm working very hard. I will be burning the late night candle tongiht, but I'm hoping to complete or come close to completing this 10 page paper on authority in literature and the treatments of authority in literature by the following critics: Plato, Aristotle, Horace, Linginus, Plotinus, Augustine, Maimonides, Aquinas, Dante, Christine de Pizan, and Mazzoni. This is a very hard paper to focus and articulate my thesis.

Besides this, I need to read 150 pages of The Bostonians by Henry James this evening for American Fiction tomorrow. I cannot lend my thoughts to discussion unless I have read the material.

I finished Hawthorne's The Blithedale Romance, and overall I must admit it was a good book. The narrator was a little too disconnected from the other characters for my taste, but Hawthorne's overall style of writing is very attractive and enlightening.

I must move on-my paper beckons!
