Take a stroll through the past and get great insights about literature to boot. I've discovered this excellent blog, by Rob Velella, a 19th-century American Literature aficionado and scholar. Oh, the tidbits he knows! Oh, the lessons he shares! Oh, the writers he champions! <cough, cough, including our own Fanny Fern> Take a look at this fascinating and well-conceived blog when you have a chance. He covers all the favorites and explores more than a few lesser-known authors. And rumor has it that he's dishing about Fanny right about now, if you happen to check in.
