Re-reading Like Truffaut

I'd been thinking about re-reading, something I almost never do now that I'm out of school. Then, reading around in Truffaut's The Films in My Life, I found:

Since I didn't dare admit that I had already seen it [a film], I had to go and pretend that I was seeing it for the first time. That was the first time I realized how fascinating it can be to probe deeper and deeper into a work one admires, that the exercise can go so far as to create the illusion of reliving the creation.
... I saw the same films over and over and began making choices as to what I would have done, if I had been the director.

--All of which suggests to me an exercise, to re-read novels, trying to imagine the creation, the choices made, how mine might differ.


  1. I’m truly pleased to find this site, just what I was looking for C_PO_75 Braindumps. Saved it to bookmarks.

  2. If you are goin gto re-read the story, please let us know how you feel now. The feelings should be absolutely different.

  3. It is great that the novels you read have a similar effect on you. The atmosphere of intrigue and a certain understatement allows you to penetrate more deeply with creativity.

  4. As to my mind, your age totally depends on your impressions. If you read a book when you are,let's say 15, you won't have enough understanding on the plot. But what will happen if you will try to read this book in your thirties?
