My new book

I am pleased to announce the publication of my new book. Its title is:
Muses and Graces, Serpents and Sirens, Virgins wise and pure... John Milton's other women
It has taken me several years to complete it, and it is the result of countless hours of reading John Milton´s prose texts and his poems.
John Milton (1608-1674) is one of those authors who do not leave anybody impassive.

I´d like to be positive, but the more I watch the news on TV the more I realize that this year is not going to be an easy one.

Banks will not be able to resell all those flats, cars, premises and will lose plenty of money. Consequently, crisis will end up in a megacrisis with no way out. 
Solution: switch off the TV.
