I haven't touched this essay for months, quite simply because of the pressure we were under re J's illness and operations. I have 11 days and two projects to finish. I made a start on Perrault/Grimm/Dickens. Trying to find some clarity here.
I maybe gone for some time...
I have summed up The Robber Bridegroom in 232 words. Well, that's a good start.....possibly need to pad this out by another 1,000 at least.
I have written 1,068 words, albeit a lot of quotes and observation points. I think I will rely heavily on Dickens and Grimm as they are far more salacious, plus it leads me nicely to carter later on.
Time to stop - theoretically I have only 1,500 to write and I will do that easily with the stuff I have to write. This is not a 'cinch' BUT I find this far, far easier than Postmodernism (yeah, I am still stung about that - it will pass).
