New term

The new term has begun (goodness, I am not done with the previous yet!), and we've had introduction to a new course. I am doing a lecture on fairy tales this time, and to give the students a taste I read to them The Story of the Grandmother. It aways comes as a shock to people who think that children's literature is about nice kitties and bunnies and naughty boys.
