Apples and oranges

Writing all day. I only produced about a thousand words, but that should mean I can finish by the end of the week.

I always find the experience of writing in cultural studies hugely labor intensive. Here I am, trying to use a sermon (1609), a letter from the Venetian ambassador (1610), an advertising jingle (1612), and a poem (1606) all in the same paragraph (or two). It feels like trying to make a toy house out of mismatching Lego pieces. If only I could just stick to poetic analysis like the old days :)
