I really like the idea of reworking older texts into new contexts. I'm dying to try to tell Ismene's story after Antigone
--only set in Appalachia. But it's rather daunting and I don't know where I'd even start.
Medieval British lit, eh? I taught Brit Lit a few years ago. It was always fun teaching the medieval period--I particularly enjoyed tying Sir Gawain and the Green Knight to the Jolly Green Giant. It made for interesting essays!!
