Think You’re Escaping and Run Into Yourself
Over at The Oyster Review, our very own Rumblr editor Molly McArdle has composed a lovely essay about how rereading old books is a journey back to the past. She writes:
The books I revisited were all fantastical and all had reached me in my late childhood. There is certainly pleasure and escape in them, but I also think they reverberate more strongly than other books I’ve read before and since then, perhaps because of their attention to the impossible, to the female, to different ways of being. I was rereading my own foundational texts. I was reminding me of myself.
