Back to the Classes

May 27, 2010

Two years after dropping out of my MA English Lit course, i went back and have finished writing my first year exams. Being at home and having a recently retired mother to take care of the trading has led to this. I am much (Two whole years) older now and it was to write five full papers of English literature in ten days. Today was the last exam. Results are due out in August. I am fairly certain i will pass easily.

Funny thing about English Literature, is less than ten percent of the students are male. The rest are all females of all ages - from girls in their early twenties to gray haired teachers. I was among a handful of males (all of us men, seem to be in the late twenties/early thirties age group) in the exam centre. Dont men read literature any more?
