Today's Strand haul

This is a blogpost, so motivated by a blend of two complementary impulses: preening (look at the books I'm reading! aren't I erudite!) and the search for people to share the books with (talk to me about them! what do you think?).

I did get some nice stuff today, and I hope the upshot here will tend more towards the second motivation than the first:

גימטריקון (Gimatrikon), i.e. a gematria dictionary
Rats, Lice, and History
How We Die
The Poems of Gerard Manley Hopkins
The Courtier and the Heretic: Leibniz, Spinoza, and the Fate of God in the Modern World
The Examined Life: Philosophical Meditations

  1. That Hopkins book is a treasure, it is. I recommend reading the poems aloud.
