Our now quarterly newsletter coincides with the change of seasons, and is being composed to a soundtrack of summer storms. This is not the only seasonal change afoot. No, we’re not thinking of all the recent and upcoming elections, but simply some new annotations prepared for you by our student teams. One might be particularly relevant to this time of change, and might make you ponder, perhaps on your summer holidays, as to the workings of time, and what those Fates spinning the thread of life have in store for us. Click here to find about more about the Fates, and how a reference to them might have the surprising potential for social critique in Dickens’s The Chimes.
