Wishful Wednesday [4]

Hore, minggu ini saya genap 4 kali ikutan Wishful Wednesday! \^O^/

Saya harus mengakui, kalau belakangan ini saya (dan Mbak Fanda) makin getol aja membaca, menulis review, mengikuti challenge ini-itu, dan menulis character study (dalam Blog Hop Character Thursday) tentang satu genre buku tertentu: klasik :). Saya sampe mikir, jangan-jangan saya ini salah jurusan yak? Hehehe. Karena rasanya saat ini saya menikmati banget berenang-renang di lautan novel klasik (halah), walau kadang ada bagian-bagian tertentu dari novel klasik yang sulit saya pahami. Tapi meskipun begitu, saya malah makin penasaran dan ingin menelusuri lebih dalam lagi. Karena itu, pertama kali “berjumpa” dengan buku di bawah ini, saya langsung kepengen punya!

The Well-Educated Mind, by Susan Wise Bauer  Goodreads | Amazon

Sinopsis dari Amazon:

Have you lost the art of reading for pleasure? Are there books you know you should read but haven’t because they seem too daunting? In The Well-Educated Mind, Susan Wise Bauer provides a welcome and encouraging antidote to the distractions of our age, electronic and otherwise.

The Well-Educated Mind offers brief, entertaining histories of five literary genres—fiction, autobiography, history, drama, and poetry—accompanied by detailed instructions on how to read each type. The annotated lists at the end of each chapter—ranging from Cervantes to A. S. Byatt, Herodotus to Laurel Thatcher Ulrich—preview recommended reading and encourage readers to make vital connections between ancient traditions and contemporary writing.

The Well-Educated Mind reassures those readers who worry that they read too slowly or with below-average comprehension. If you can understand a daily newspaper, there’s no reason you can’t read and enjoy Shakespeare’s Sonnets or Jane Eyre. But no one should attempt to read the “Great Books” without a guide and a plan. Susan Wise Bauer will show you how to allocate time to your reading on a regular basis; how to master a difficult argument; how to make personal and literary judgments about what you read; how to appreciate the resonant links among texts within a genre—what does Anna Karenina owe to Madame Bovary?—and also between genres. Followed carefully, the advice in The Well-Educated Mind will restore and expand the pleasure of the written word.

Karena harga buku ini cukup mahal, diatas USD 20, jadi untuk sementara saya biarkan mendekam di deretan wishlist deh. Entah kapan bisa terwujud… *saya juga rasanya belom siap jadi mahasiswa sastra nih* *ngelamun*
