because I know so many people are interested...
(I kid, I kid. Boy, do I kid.)
I picked a topic on my own, for my short essay. You know, the one with the call for suggestions
. I probably should have mentioned in that post that I really couldn't stand To the Lighthouse
, and I didn't pick something fromWomen in Love
because it just has way, way, way too much to talk about in just a few pages.
When I asked one of my co-workers for her opinion, she said, "anything's got to be better than James Joyce - and since I feel that way, you should probably pick it - since we seem to be polar opposites on most things."
This is true...and I did pick Joyce. Specifically, I'm going to write about the scene in which his schoolmates try to make him say that Byron is better than Tennyson. The nerve of them!
