Robert Burton's Book for a Desert Island
Thanks for reminding me of this book. I haven't thought about it or looked at it for decades. I guess it's time to take another look.
I've always wanted to read this book ... !
I love this book! is really such a rich work, you could read it forever. I would include it with Montaigne's Essays as an essential work to keep and peruse till death.
I don't understand though why you should only own a KJ Bible "grudgingly"?? It may be the best piece of literature, along w Homer, ever created. Does the writer prefer another translation or was it some sort of anti-Christian signal?
