No fluff there, M! I’ll read Dante later this year. I’ve laid out four months for it. : )

Hope I'm not simply discoloring your thread with silly comments, but that is another terrific list of titles that leaves a lot to wonder about... like the book by David Valeta - fun reading, or painful dry commentary?

No worries. The Valeta volume was good. He read the Daniel stories as a Menippean Satire, following the classification of Russian literary critic Mikhail Bakhtin.
