I found this post about Auden's first arrival in New York to be fascinating. And, bonus, it includes an obscure Auden occasional (written as a thank you to the manager of the hotel he stayed at) poem I'd never seen, but is pretty amusing.
I'm reading Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus with a friend. It's the only way I'll manage it. This article at Aeon about Frank Ramsey, Wittgenstein's friend, first translator, and all-around genius was useful.
A number of things have made me interested in Virginia Woolf's diaries lately. (This is includes you, O, at Quaint and Curious) and this at The New Republic was definitely interesting. Multiple simultaneous diaries! Hmm. Did Doris Lessing know about this?

Looking out over my and my neighbors' backyards in Toronto. It's warmer today, but still this would be a good week to be somewhere else...
How about you?
