Winter reading assignments


There is still time for you to read your Winter assignments. Some of us have not yet even started last Summer's texts... but then disavowal has always proved the most successful psychosocial apparatus for the opening of other portals. Or at least, it is an ideal opportunity to come up with that perfectedly implausible reason for not doing your homework. 


Readings for everyone:

Genesis 11:26–25:10

Educating Father Abraham: the Meaning of Patriarchy by Leon Kass

Laws Concerning the Messiah by Maimonides

Hugh Selwyn Mauberley by Ezra Pound
