I just finished Huckleberry Finn and coincidentally ran across this lovely illus.Traveling-by-flatboat-engraving-by-Alfred-R-Waud.png

About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.

    Thank you for that well done image of life in those days. We may return to them. The artist lived only thirty years. The clouds just above the horizon look much like the surface of a river.
