Sigh. So, despite not having studied English at university (a concept which didn't seem to be an option in the quiz answers), which may have reduced my ability to identify lines of 18th century poetry (but not Paradise Lost, the first book of which has apparently been stuck in my head since 1993, if my residual ability to identify any line from it is any indication)

Well-Read Indeed!

You scored 150 of 290!
Wow! OK, some of those were really tricky--but you made it through! Not only would you pass most lit courses, you probably thought about being an English major. Actually, with those numbers, you might be a grad student! Have you given any thought to a PhD? You know they confer omniscience with those, right?

Then on the margin of the world I sit and think

It was news to me that Swift and Joyce now count as "British" literature. I mean, for fuck's sake. Dubliners is an option on one of the questions. How many times do we have to tell people that Dublin isn't actually in Britain?
