Bloody Finished!

Thank the Lord!

I’ve finally finished Goblin Market and it has almost killed me. It’s approaching 11pm in Uzbekistan and my wife has been in bed for a couple of hours, but… priorities!

It is a huge 8,300 words (give or take a few) and is no doubt littered with minor mistakes – please forgive me. However, hopefully there are some helpful ideas in there and it lets you understand the poem a bit better.

Now I sleep, but my next promise is for Monna Innominata to be completed by the end of the month.  I need to stop making promises to people on the internet!

Goodnight all x

Although I've only been teaching Literature since 2011 and did my degree in History, I think that makes me better placed than many Lit teachers to provide notes that make sense and aren't garbled and wrapped up with inaccessible terminology and effluent nonsense. After adventures in Uganda and Uzbekistan, I am now settling down in the Netherlands. However, currently I am just about as unsettled as I have ever been, with a new job, a new baby, a new country and a hundred other things going on! Ask me a question, collaborate or abuse me.
