Here be dragons

September 16, 2009

Famously, medieval maps of the world filled in unexplored corners with the ominous warning that ‘here be dragons’. Less famously, only one surviving map actually carries it: the Lenox Globe, which puts the dragons somewhere on the eastern coast of Asia.

I’m a student of English literature, aiming to specialise in the medieval period; I also have an abiding love of Shakespeare, Star Wars, fantasy and science fiction in general, reading and writing. Of late (I think it started when I came to university and had to start dealing with the world like a semiresponsible adult) I’ve been thinking in more depth about my own politics and what I personally get from them. For a while now I’ve been wanting a space to discuss things that don’t really fit into academia or into casual conversation. Hence this.

The Wicked Day is my blog, and aims to poke around a bit in a few of those unexplored corners. It is entirely possible I will find strange things. Maybe even dragons.

    Ms. Marynwolf,
    I found your blog and now I am reading your blog, yes. I like it because it is written exactly I think like how your thoughts are & is thus like peering into your brain. Excellent!

    Sorry, disregard that, I found the bit of the site where it says where it’s from.
