Came upon your blog while searching for Bachelard. Can recommend his poetics of space. Would rather read Barthes' A lovers discourse than the others. Mythologies dates badly. All the best.

Matthew said...

Thanks for the recommendations. I'll be sure to check them out. Poetics of Space is translated into English I take it? Not that I mind the French, just makes it easier...
