I finished that paper for INST 612. I had no joy for that paper. The only redeeming quality of writing that paper – perhaps there are more that I am unaware of – was that I learned a little bit more about Toni Morrison in the process.
Morrison wrote on behalf of Alice Randall’s book The Wind Done Gone back in 2001, and I used a piece of what she said in my paper (about copyright). I also found out inadvertently that she’s worth 24 million dollars. Must be nice.
