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?

  5. That sounds to be like a wonderful idea! Thanks a lot for giving a hint. Of course, I will be considering this statement.
