A, B, C, Per Penny

A course list I'd like to teach:

Thomas Hardy

D.H. Lawrence

Phillip Larkin

John Fowles

Ian McEwan

Call it a seminar, give it an institutional marker, maybe 'English 498'.

And for the term I teach it, 'English 498: English Love-Lost'.

I 'own' a course like this.  It has my name incised into its marble.

And I'll never be teaching it.  Our system will have me at 'English Blah-Blah: The Utilitarian Justification For Studying Language At All'

Higher Education begging tuppence from a skinflint.  

A wet sheet hung out against dreadful windchill.
