Edward II

28 posts in this topic

When I first read about E2, the first thing that came to my mind was the manner of his death, and I thought to myself, "They wouldn't...they couldn't!" Guess again.

I'm glad this one hasn't made it to Boston (where "Dracula" is still the talk of the town).

What will they think of next? How about a dance version of "Alien Autopsy"?

There is a very funny book of potted English history called 1066 And All That, a brief summary of what the average student might remember after leaving school, which divided things into Good Things and Bad Things, and I have to say that Edward II is a Very Bad Thing.

That book was written, of course, when England was Top Nation.

My Gawd, I thought I was the only person in America who'd read that book.

Richard Armour has written several little books on American history, literature, etc., that carry on in much the same vein.
