Major Dissertation: Preface and Chapter 1 Reappraisal - Day 4

Image result for book pile

My dear, dear, sweet unconscious is trying to ge tme to lighten up.  Last night, I dreamt that head lecturer Rachel C had made a book shrine to Angela Carter.  Every useful book open, every helpful hint underlined.  I am not even a third of the way through yet.

Well, after a very busy, non-academic start to the day, I am settling down with today's session.  I have put a chair up to the door to ban the cats from entering as they are either trying to tear up stuff so I will take notice, or beat the crap out of each other.  Cannot be doing this.  Right now, I am concentrating on the relationship between Melanie and Aunt Margaret, hopefully get the gist, nay a conclusion.  Here goes ;-)

Feel a bit better now, but need to reappraise the last bit, before really paring back.  I feel I have an argument now, which is a bonus.  I am done for tonight and will be back tomorrow.
