Some Interesting Reads

peirce-semiosisI’m currently working on my thesis paper for my Lit degree, so that means I’ve been swimming in journal articles and books. I’ll be writing on the novel as semiosphere, a subject I’ve touched in two of prior papers (here and here) but which I want to pursue in much more depth. Some of the stuff I’ll be trying to incorporate into my thesis is covered in the papers I’ve listed below. I find this stuff fascinating and, more importantly, helpful in understanding the supremacy and Lordship of the Logos of God/Jesus Christ over all of reality. You’ll probably need school credentials to get these articles….or you may not need them. I haven’t had the time to check which is the case.

But either way, enjoy :)
