My next lecture is prepared, but I continue to tinker with it, searching for ways to present a plausible literary analysis to folks many of whom have not read the text being analysed. The temptation, to which I fear I have somewhat succumbed, is to read out passages. I mean, who wants to hear Wolff when they can hear Marx? Tomorrow evening the CCRC where I live is screening Amadeus [with free popcorn.] At least Milos Forman could play Mozart's music in the background while the plot unfolds.
