Literary news

This review piqued my interest. I'll try to get ahold of the book it mentions and if I do read it I'll be sure to review it here. I find the Inklings quite fascinating and would be glad to learn more about them.
Interesting article from The Guardian asking why the intelligent authors today do not fill the same sort of role that George Orwell and Charles Dickens did in their time.
Another article that only tangentally mentions Dickens. It's mostly about Jane Austen (Or "Austin" as the author spells it.) and the need or lack thereof for annotated versions and "Regency Handbooks." (I like Regency handbooks myself. Although I see his point.)
Picture from Jane Eyre 2006, edited by myself.
