Close, but he doesn't quite get it. I reread because as I advance in age, certain books resonate more, others less. Some books I was tortured by in school because I had no experience to illuminate their important messages.
My book collection is vast. Much in boxes these days. But they get dug through when I need to access a classic that I think might help me handle the times.
Dickens is getting mileage (again) right now.
