"Would you mind teaching a . . . course next year in the novels of Bulwer-Lytton?"
"You have to be joking. I have never read Bulwer-Lytton. I have never even discussed reading Bulwer-Lytton, except with some strange student who used to turn up every seven years with another thousand pages on the deveopment of the historical novel. Ah, I see, The Last Days of Pompeii is now considered relevant. Perhaps it is, at that." — Poetic Justice (1870) by Amanda Cross (Carolyn Heilbrun)
