Well, folks, the papers are in. The past three days I have sweated and slaved over my computer during every one of Istra's sleeping moments--besides those during which I too was sleeping--and finally they are done.
The fruits of my labours are 25 pages on the proposal scenes in Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, Emma and Persuasion and 26 pages on the womb as a device for moral evolution in Spenser's The Faerie Queene. Overall both were pretty fun to write, but somehow I seem to always feel more satisfied in the end with my Renaissance topics.
I now have 10 days of freedom before summer school starts--The Canterbury Tales and The Pastoral in Film and Literature. These few days are not completely free, however; I have so many other things to do--I have to read the whole of Canterbury Tales, for instance. I have probably around 100 hours of scanning to do for my GA work.
Just a little post and pre school update... and of course a couple cute little pictures of Istra to satisfy your cannibalistic lust for baby flesh.
