Chapter: English Literature During The Middle Ages
"Lludd and Lleuelys" is easily the stupidest story I've read so far in the Norton Anthology. As such, I've drawn an equally stupid strip for it. I'd tell exactly why the story is so stupid, but really, it's only four pages long. You can skim through the idiocy yourself.
Just a few minutes ago, I discovered (much to my chagrin) that a great deal of the Anthology itself is available for free online in PDF form. As such, that'll be what I link to as much as possible now, so that we're all reading the exact same material. Where applicable, I'm going to be going back into the LB archives and updating the links that I can. Seriously, though, this blows my mind - I had no idea so much material was actually available from Norton themselves. Now, obviously, it's only public domain material. You won't see Seamus Heaney's "Beowulf" there, for instance, but it's still a pretty awesome little archive. Give it a look some time, particularly if you wanna follow along in my little journey.
Lit Brick is a comic started by Jodie Troutman in an effort to read the entire Norton Anthology of English Literature. Having eventually succeeded in that goal, it now features comics about all manner of random literature. For more of Jodie's work, visit troutcave.net!
