A Little Bit of Bread and No Cheese (2001) Jeremy Over

‘To begin with, I don’t know. I don’t know if I am competent to discuss this. I am afraid not. I don’t know. Perhaps no one knows and if no one knows, perhaps it doesn’t matter. It may be that someone else does know. I don’t know. Does it matter? This is not the same thing as saying it does or that I do. On the one hand it does and on the other hand it doesn’t. I don’t know. But it really has, along with everything else, and for the most part no doubt always shall, in time, be something of that sort, for very little is ever not. I suppose I had very little in mind anyway. A kind of jotting. I should like to consider this by autumn’

About ejpollard

I was awarded my PhD from Manchester Metropolitan University, UK in December 2013. My thesis explored the notions of origin and ellipsis in the writing of contemporary British novelist Hilary Mantel. I want this blog to express the ideas I have in and around my academic writing. View all posts by ejpollard
