Some Noted Things ...
An Announcement: Please stop coming by Cliopatria for a summary of or Cliff Notes to The Kingdom of Matthias by Paul Johnson and Sean Wilentz. We're delighted that the book is being assigned, but you won't find what you're looking for here. You can buy the paper you want here for prices ranging between $25 and $100, depending on your aspirations. Better yet, read the book. That's what the prof told you to do, so do it.
At University Diaries, Margaret Soltan gives us a run-down on last week's hoaxes. Are we gullible or what?
It's Ladies Nite Out in a poetry grudge match to end National Poetry Month. Sharon's Donne and Marlowe meets Another Damned Medievalist's Andrew Marvell and Ancarett's Walter Raleigh. Metaphysical Poets, anyone? Graham Lester at Point2Point poses a challenge: see if you can re-arrange these lines of a Shakespearean sonnet back into their correct order.
Congratulations to our colleague, Alan Allport, and everyone at Horizon. They're celebrating their first anniversary over there.

I'm constantly amused by the number of seekers after book reviews or Cliff's Notes who wind up at my site. And I'm not a bit sorry that the stuff I've posted about various books is completely inappropriate to their needs.
Buy the book, people. Read it. I know...you might accidentally learn something, but that's the risk you take when you're in school.
