I will not be adding my own equivalent of soup rings to any medieval manuscripts: no one would let me rest a coffee cup on Morgan M690, nor would anyone allow me to do what one earlier owner of the book did--take out a pencil and draw large, full-folio portrait heads on the flyleafs. One worships at the altar of the manuscript; one does not doodle on it.

I'm starting an Orals Filter, so that I can post about how many lines of Elene I've read in any given day without boring the 99% of you who really don't care. (In the unlikely chance that you're curious, I read 85 lines today, which was 115 lines under my goal.)

Reply here if you want to be on the filter.

Linkage!

Two brilliant posts that greeted me when I checked my friendslist today:

Here's an article on Advanced symptoms of advanced degrees, or how to diagnose Global Irony Syndrome and Hyper-Theory Disorder.

Teresa Nielsen Hayden shares some Old English literature with us at Making Light, including the Feower Axunge (which begins with For hwi is þeos niht ungelic eallum oþrum nihtum?).

Hermione secretly desires Meg Murry

Kazul smooches Bran Davies

If anyone writes me Hermione/Meg Murry, I will die of love.

I might just have to write the Kazul/Bran myself, though.

ETA: [livejournal.com profile] calanthe_b considers the model of the modern literary theorist here:

When I know what is meant by 'deconstruct' and 'ideology',
When I can spot assumptions hegemonic from a mile away,
When I accept my preconceptions all need reconfiguring--
When I learn words like 'feminist' and use them without sniggering...

When I learn how to jettison all concepts common-sensible,
When I forget entirely what is meant by 'comprehensible',
In short, when I've adjusted to kaleidoscopic spectacle--
Well, then I'll be postmodern which is equally respectable!
