Reading experience

Evidence

"I started to read a book called ""Ishtar"". It"s not very good but I was very vague as to who Ishtar was - apparently the Babylonian goddess of love, war and fertility. Persepone, Artemis and Freya all in one. Normally Iwould not have bothered with it but a remark in Durrell"s ""Black Book"" had set me wondering about Ishtar, vis - ""From music we demand our whole life if it is to move us; every modulation of dream, despair, love, yearning. It is the past and the future going down into the tomb; the descent of Ishtar among the soiled roses; the entry into the chamber of the Cosmos; the first kicking in the womb and the last elegant spasm of cessation, lull, status"". ""Ishtar"" by E.S. Stevens is badly written and rater trite, but quite interesting. I like stories about ""digs"" and I am rather interested in Baghdad though I know very little about that part of the world."
