Whee!

So...I got my essay back.

::grins widely::

72.

(on a scale of up to 85, a number reserved for God, Napoléon and the Académie-Français...er...wrong country. But you get the point.)

70-79 is the second-highest band, but 80-85 is supposedly near impossible to get. As in something publishable on the spot.

And the last line of the examiners' report just made me so incredibly warm and fuzzy.

"Nonetheless, the essay is elegant and convincing, a fine and accessible reading of a complicated film, and easily matches or surpasses any of the secondary sources she cites."

::descends into Sally Field mode:: They like me! They really like me!

I survived

Essay was handed in at noon today. Bound and everything. It looked quite pretty.

Went to the library and returned all the books I'd used for it. Nice sense of closure. Then picked up more books, two on Mélusine, a copy of La Reine Margot, and a historical account of Marguerite de Valois. Yay for random research.

Either tomorrow or Friday is my tome-diving research party. Yay tome-diving! Several hours in the rare books room for me. And yes, I do this for fun.
