I aten’t dead!

Just busy! However, I thought I’d swing by and share this fine piece of scholarship which I prepared for my paper at the CMS Arthurian Study Day last week:

I was actually talking about heterosocial friendship (specifically Yvain-Lunette) in three versions of the Yvain romance, and tossed this up for cheap laughs. However, it seems to have been very popular, and I ended up in a serious conversation with someone afterwards about why I had placed Roland so low on the twittiness scale compared to other heroes (I have my reasons!).
