This one is a sort of male-Emma: young man tries to help out, everything goes to pot. But he's (he's a man) also taking up with Abstract Ideas as current in the 1840s, which means Chartism, stale Tradition vs reckless Reform, which the hero manifests as Mus

Finished as in, I'm not reading this book any more, and since 1. the author is long dead, 2. he already has a place in the British literary canon, and 3. I tried and failed to read his better-known Tom Brown's Schooldays, I'm going to rate it as a warning.

You know how Ang Lee once asked of Emma Thom

As an enrollment counselor at a community college, I really like this book as an opportunity to see what has changed about the college student's mindset and what has stayed the same. Since I tend to romanticize the historical, and especially the English, the nearest candor even as HE looked back tha
