The gals discuss the Cinderella effect and the problem of a timorous corpus

Leigh is taking two seminars this semester: Dickens and Frost, Bishop, & Stevens. Last night she said she had to read The Pickwick Papers for Monday and a bunch of Frost for today. A colloquy ensued: was it advisable to read the Frost poems during the earlier part of the evening on the grounds that if caught reading Frost at midnight she would then be reading Coleridge? And how important was it to avoid horror movies and other frights at the end of the semester when writing her final paper for the other seminar, so as to minimize the chance of having the Dickens scared out of her?
