I think we can add a trope/fiction reading to this list.  I was awakened
to the fact (last night Good Friday showing of Dracula at Arizona Theatre
Company in Tucson: excellent, closing night of run) that Bram Stoker was
Irish, born in Dublin in 1803? and wrote Dracula in 1850.  The novel is
set in the future, with Dracula arriving to callously drink the blood of
populated London in 1897.   Knowing this, my understanding of Dracula has
been transformed. absolutely incredible writing and critical analysis
presented in the arts.  Foucaultians eat your hearts out!  Kathleen /
