Bluebeard Mini Dissertation Part One - Day 1

Image result for blood sky
As I will be CONSTANTLY writing about Bluebeard, it would be very difficult to keep finding appropriate pictures, not to mention that it would be rather disconcerting to have grisly depictions of a murderer across LJ - so I will at least try to break up the horror effect by posting moons/castles or whatever.

I have written a miserly 200 words today, which quite frankly is Not A Lot.  I don't want to be caught up in the retelling of the story; more that I want to understand how history affected literature.  My PP well documented back in november will assist me.  OK - I maybe gone for some time (well, actually to the supermarket to get pancake mix for Shrove Tuesday).


635 words, mostly inspired by my PP from November.  I need to sew more detail in, though.  My Michel Focault books on The History of Sexuality 1,2 & 3 have arrived and I have it on authority that I will have the Maria Tartar book and the Jacques Lacan book too.
