Pugs of Wisdom!

The supposedly prim and proper Lord Tennyson, speaking savage truth as only the Victorians could:


Authors – essayist, atheist, novelist,

realist, rhymaster, play your part,

Paint the mortal shame of nature

with the living hues of Art.

Rip your brothers’ vices open, strip

your own foul passions bare;

Down with Reticence, down with Reverence -

forward – naked – let them stare.





I intend Stevereads to be the ongoing autobiography of my reading - but I still love interaction! Readers are welcome to email me on any bookish subject under the sun, and if you want me to send you a copy of anything I discuss here, just say the word!
