I’d been meaning to make a rec list for a while, but now I’m finally getting around to it! I’ve read or started to read most of the books on this list, and I own 95% of them. If I haven’t read it, but someone has recommended it to me, I’ve included it. I know that there are books I’ve read or have been meaning to read that aren’t on here because my memory is shit and I never write anything down. Titles link to Goodreads.

An asterisk (*) indicates a book I haven’t read yet. A pound sign (#) indicates a book I haven’t read yet, but which others have recommended. A tilde (~) indicates a book I’m in the process of reading and would recommend up to the current point (aka “I don’t know if this book has a terrible second half, but so far it’s good”). Italics indicate a personal favorite.




Feel free to add others!

Re: the last reblog about Shylock in Merchant of Venice: Marlowe’s Barabas from The Jew of Malta is repugnant, and does indeed make “Shylock look like Tevye the Dairyman.” But Barabas has something that, interestingly, Shylock doesn’t. Barabas has agency.
What does Shylock do in Merchant of Venice? He ropes Antonio into a lethal deal. Aside from that, nothing of note happens that Shylock precipitates. His daughter is taken from him, his riches are taken from him, his religion is taken from him. Yet these are all things that happen to Shylock. Shylock doesn’t make anything happen. He can’t. Society has him bound before he begins.

Barabas, on the other hand? He’s the white-hot center of energy and action in  The Jew of Malta. We open on a scene of Barabas counting his money, and then the Maltese government strips him of his wealth to pay for their wars. He proceeds to, among other things, steal back his riches with his daughter’s help, set up two Christian suitors of his daughter in a mutually fatal duel, poison an entire nunnery, buy a slave, poison said slave, sell out the island of Malta to the forces of Turkey, sell out the Turks to the deposed government of Malta, set a deathtrap, and finally confess all before dramatically perishing in a boiling cauldron, hoist by his own petard.
Of course, none of the things he does in this play are good things. But there’s a Richard III-like quality to the scope of Barabas’s cunning and violence. He’s evil. He’s treacherous. He will do anything to get what he wants. He kind of has a motive. And he’s really, really fun. Like, I would want play this character, he is so gleefully malicious.

One can’t ignore that this whole play, and Merchant, proceed from anti-semitic assumptions about the way Jews are. But it’s interesting that Marlowe makes Barabas the center of action. Marlowe takes the idea of a Jew and blows it into Barabas’s antics, almost like a speculative revenge fantasy: what would happen if the Jews had free rein here, given the shit we’ve put them through? But Shakespeare puts Shylock through what happens in an actual society to an actual Jew: systemic injustice and slow suffocation. 

I don’t know what any of this means, but it’s food for thought. I’m just fascinated by both of these characters.

Not so long elapsed, a job called wellness parlor car existed in the marketplace. This is an unit which is different except a isolated trainer and a nutritionist.
