I’m currently taking a module called ‘The Bible and Literature’ which involves taking a look at the textuality of the Bible itself, as well as how it manifests itself throughout literature. It’s so interesting to actually read the Bible, because there’s so much we assume we know about it already which is often different in the text itself. I’m currently reading Ben Hur which, although a bit hefty, is actually a lot more exciting than I anticipated. I’m looking forward to finishing it, not so much on the presentation I have to give on the module at the end of term. I also loved reading The Road which I did a review of a couple of days ago.
