Workin' Weekend: on becoming an expert

Scholarly friends, I have an important question for you in this post regarding memory. It has occurred to me that as I compile this annotated bibliography, I am simply full of critical opinions regarding The Tenant of Wildfell Hall. I can remember the arguments the articles make, and some of the finer points of evidence. Hurrah! I am an informed scholar and can chatter about The Tenant of Wildfell Hall all the livelong day.

But of course, I should not like to spout these critical opinions as if they were my own, because, as I tell my students, that would be ILLEGAL. Plagairism, in fact. (That word always looks like I am spelling it wrong). Yet, here's the thing. As easy a time that I have remembering these sometimes complex and sometimes not-so-complex arguments, I cannot ever remember the critic who espouses them. (Sad, right? This sure bodes well for my future career. I will write numerous articles, and no one will ever know my name...)

So, scholars, do you have any tips for remembering the authors of articles and nonfiction books?

Meanwhile, I am creeping through Bleak House. I haven't decided whether I like it or not, though I have to admit that Charles Dickens really overdoes the satire. It has stopped being funny. Now it's just annoying.

It's been quite windy here in Iowa City for the past week. Luckily, because it is still cold enough to wear tights and leggings, I have not flashed anybody. But don't worry, come spring there will be an inevitable embarassing I-just-flashed-some-people post.

Graduate student perfection, from the mix of colors and fabrics to the cheery hat. Lovely, my dear!
