What are you reading? Rebecca Parton, Peer Mentor
At the moment I am reading Sir Gawain and the Green Knight for my Medieval Romance course. The North Western dialect is almost intractable without a good translation, but the alliterative verse in the original language is a joy to hear! There seems to be very little time for ‘pleasure’ reading as an English student so it is fortunate then that most of what we study I thoroughly enjoy. If pushed for my real pleasurable reading indulgence then I would have to say it is a toss-up between George Eliot and Vogue!
