Jim Carroll If you don't like ballads...... (252* d) RE: If you don't like ballads...... 14 May 19


"Can you imagine today a don teaching such disparate topics"
Child in fact worked his way up through various disciplines to arrive at Literature as his main subject - there is no suggestion anywhere that he ever taught them all at the same time
his general editorial supervision of the publication of a 130-volume collection of the works of the British poets along with his fifve volume work on Spenser suggests that he found his mojo pretty conclusively in literature
He intended to carry out a critical survey of Chaucer but, deciding this was not possible due to the sparseness of Chaucerian writings available so instead, published a commentary on Chaucer's use of language in order to make future work feasible - he certainly was no 'dabbler' in his subjects
He, like Sharp, was subject to the ignorances and pressures of his time - who isn't ?
