Dear Professor Rumrich,
I apologize for bothering you, but I'm thinking of applying for the position at OWU that Zack Long posted about. I doubt that I have much chance, but I might as well risk it.
I realize that you don't know me well, though we do have our online acquaintance, but I wonder if you would feel comfortable writing me a recommendation.
I will understand if you would rather not, but if you are willing, then I could provide you whatever information you might need.
Best Regards,
Jeffery Hodges

Hi all,
Below I have pasted a brand new job posting for my home 
department. It is being advertised in all the usual places, 
too, of course.  I only mention it here because I wanted to 
alert any potentially interested parties to the fact that the 
literary period/field is *genuinely* open.  So if you have a 
serious interest/expertise in postcolonial literary studies--
the kind that would qualify you to teach a survey course that 
reflected the range of work done under that moniker--then, by 
all means, all you Miltonists, Spenserians, Shakespeareans, 
and other early modernists with interests in the New World, 
Ireland, imperialism, the history and legacy of colonialism, 
etc., please apply.
Zack Long

A friend in New Zealand sent this along, which I hadn't seen before.  It's an alternatively instructive pleasure.

Paradise Saved
(another version of the Fall)
Adam, indignant, would not eat with Eve, 
They say, and she was driven from his side. 
Watching the gates close on her tears, his pride 
Upheld him, though he could not help but grieve, 
And climbed the wall, because his loneliness 
Pined for her lonely figure in the dust: 
Lo, there were two! God who is more than just 
Sent her a helpmeet in that wilderness.
Day after day he watched them in the waste 
Grow old breaking the harsh unfriendly ground, 
Bearing their children, till at last they died. 
While Adam, whose fellow God had not replaced, 
Lived on immortal, young, with virtue crowned, 
Sterile and impotent and justified.

A. D. Hope  (1907-2000)
