It was a bit drilling because of the language and the multiple references and footnotes... But it was interesting and funny enough, at least the stuff I caught. Surely with a better knowledge of the context and the English of the time I could have enjoyed it much better, though. I especially liked all the twingling drama between families, servants, and class-relations, and the most boring stuff to me were the small adventures along the way, at the inns and stuff. I hope my lecturer gives me a broarder view of the subject, hopefully.
