March Already!

A bright, beautiful day, just right for tackling difficult thinking, but no time to do more to the book today! Everything I read is adding to my feeling that the Middle English version of the story has several potential semiotic layers. The placing of the start in the ancient Hamtunshire, the tantalising prospect of Wessex and earl Godwine emerging through the mists of multilayered history require further consideration. It’s so easy to get carried away with ideas that have no firm foundation. But no matter how many dead ends turn up, I am reward for this morning’s reading with one inhabitant of the Isle of Wight in the 16th century who went by the name of Lazarus Bramble! Nothing whatever to do with Bevis, but what a wonderful name!
