TFW during a lecture course when you offer a few anecdotes about piecing together wonderful stories in archives, and the class looks really interested, and you feel like you're spreading some of the joy of studying history, and life is good.

For me, this is one of the most faithful adaptations of anything. The story takes its time and is perfectly cast and set, bringing Elizabeth Gaskell's prose to vibrant life.

The true detectives were the friends we made along the way.

One of my grad students called Eliza Haywood “the Shonda Rhimes of the 18th century” and I LOVE IT.

How can one think of Edward when there’s a Frederick in the picture?!?

She immediately felt how reasonable it was, that Mrs. Croft should be thinking and speaking of Edward, and not of Frederick; and with shame at her own forgetfulness applied herself to the knowledge of their former neighbour's present state with proper interest.

Currently dividing the Gothic into two kinds: 1. Discovering the house is haunted. 2. Acquiring a house and installing haunting into it.

It didn't occur to me, until doing this exercise just now, that Penelope might be blaming Troy primarily for hurting Odysseus. However much you read, reread, read around and meditate on the text and the work, it's always hard to see beyond your own assumptions.
