GROUP READ: Comments, anyone?

I for one, had a hard time with this selection.  It isn’t because it’s a discussion on a time and place I’m relatively familiar with but because it has been hard to focus. One reason has to do with personal concerns and the other, which I do want to share here has to do with all  we are bombarded with everyday that amounts to a world crisis.

I also order the collected poets of this distinguished writer.  Poetry, as a genre, has come somewhat easier these last 3 1/2 years due to the difficulty of my focus.

Nevertheless, thus far,  I did get through half The Captive Mind.  I’d like to have comments here from anyone else who may be joining me.
