1.) Finish re-reading Gabriele D'Annunzio's Il Piacere;
2.) Read Georg Simmel's "The Metropolis and Mental Life";
3.) Read the first part of M.M. Bakhtin's "Forms of Time And of the Chronotope in The Novel: Notes toward a Historical Poetics";
4.) Re-read Frank Kermode's The Sense of an Ending; and
5.) Read a chapter from Peter Osborne's The Politics of Time: Modernity and Avant-Garde.
Then by Monday morning at the latest, I'll write up my thesis presentation notes. I can do it, if I'm diligent.
Speaking of diligence, off I go.
