  1. When I did my masters there was a lecturer who talked about one of his students reading Tristan as if it was out of the Woman’s Weekly, and crying about when the little dog died. And then he said how refreshing it was for someone to read it as the first readers did, not as an academic. QED, I think! So I did Coeur de Lyon as the Hulk.


    1. That sounds like a great course! There’s always something to be got from approaching texts in news ways, trying to make them new and not academic artefacts. Sometimes it doesn’t work as you would have liked but it’s never a total waste of time!
