How did this happen?

Published December 9, 2014 by Iphis of Scyros

I’m working on my paper about a Greek myth and the way it’s changed over time.  So how did I end up with three books about Renaissance England?

Okay, technically one of them is actually from Renaissance England, not about it, being a Shakespeare play, but I actually got the book out of the library to read its lengthy introduction, not to read the play.  (The play I’d already read.  Though its notes are better for my purpose than the ones on my copy of the complete works, so that’s something as well.)

But how did I end up with two other books on Renaissance England?  I mean, for pity’s sake, that’s not even something a lot of people even acknowledge as being real:  many consider that only Italy had a proper Renaissance.  (Personally, my take on that is along the lines of “eh, whatever.”)

The worst part is, several of the books on my list to look into tomorrow are also about/from Renaissance England.  I’m gonna have to put a disclaimer on my paper that it’s ended up heavily focused on that area in that era, and that for expediency’s sake, I’ve had to make the quite possibly erroneous assumption that similar conclusions apply to the\rest of Europe in that period.  On the other hand, I suppose if I managed to get the whole era covered completely, then there wouldn’t be much left for my thesis.
