The Destruction of Sennacherib

Here is a poem to keep us occupied while Dewhurst is reading his book.

It is written by George Gordon Byron.

I believe Dewhurst just started his book, so her or I might post another poem before the next post.
Enjoy this poem. I like it a lot.

P.S. Has anyone posted The Lady of Shalott poem yet??

Important question: How do you add a link to your post??

I want to post a poem, and I am sure the rest of the posters would want to know too. Please comment and let me know!
Thank you.

The Importance of Being Earnest

Greetings! And now for my long-awaited, highly-anticipated post!

I recently re-read (re-re-re-re-read) my favorite play, The Importance of Being Earnest. This is not only my favorite play ever, but one of my favorite THINGS ever. The plot is much to complicated to explain in any detail here, but it begins with a man who's name is Earnest in the town and Jack in the country. What ensues is probably the funniest and most clever thing I have ever read. To give you an idea of how hilarious it is, here are a few of my favorite quotes:

"The suspense is terrible. I hope it will last."

"I hate happy endings, they depress me so much."

"If I am occasionally a little over-dressed, I make up for it by being immensely over-educated."

"I never change, except in my affections."

I HIGHLY recommend this book for those of you who haven't read it already. It's a pretty quick read and I'm sure you'll all love it.

5/5 Recommended
