Never mind - I will have to go onward with IL3 Wordsworth and Eliot :-/
IL3 is done. I have noticed that my essays seem to double up, my stream of consciousness writes like someone else is singing a duet with it. I am a bit irritated as my printer is starting to run out of ink at a pretty critical time and the hose on my car radiator has sprung a leak again. Grrr - wasn't like I was planning on going anywhere, but even so. Decided to go back to TH3, because this is the assignment that is niggling me the most at the moment.
OK, I think I have got the idea of 'How to be a Theorist' crash course 101. I *think* my mistake is that I have been putting the text first and the theory very much as a secondary consideration - when it should be the other way round. I also have to rethink how the population is perceived by the *insert theory* mind.
My head hurts - this is most definitely something I have to brush up on during the summer holiday.
I think I am near the end of the first half. I have to think of the psychological being of the author and the psychological motives of the reader. Hmmm. Is this going to be awkward territory for me, I wonder? I have a fascination for dystopian societies and I have to see beyond my own motives. Control issues? Overt control? Sadist Versus Masochist? I think I might have best part of another day on this. Loooong slog ahead.
