Chapter: English Literature During The Middle Ages
See, I told you she was crazy. Rather than spend her life with Conchobor and his friend Whathisface, Deirdre stuck her head out the proverbial car window just as a giant rock appeared beside the chariot. All in all, it was a pretty gruesome way to go. So sayeth the text:
"A big block of stone was in front of her. She let her head be driven against the stone, and made a mass of fragments of it, and she was dead."
I mean, ew. Of course, the real question is - did she make a mass of fragments of the boulder or of her head? I assumed, in the battle between boulder and skull, that boulder would win. As such, in my mind, Deirdre's head pretty much exploded into a shower of blood. Then again, I'm always looking for an excuse to draw a comical shower of blood.
