Jean in Newcastle Posted January 9, 2012 Share Posted January 9, 2012 I'm struck by how knowledgeable characters in British novels always seem to be. They are always quoting Keats or Shelley or bringing up some ancient Greek myth. Are people really that well rounded in the humanities in real life? Or is it a reflection of the leanings of the authors who being authors probably were interested in poetry, literature and mythology? And am I forgetting that American characters used to be well-versed in these things? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
