Mods The most obvious difference between real essays and the things one has to write in school is that real essays are not exclusively about English literature.

But for obvious reasons no one wanted to give that answer. The archaeological work being mostly done, it implied that those studying the classics were, if not wasting their time, at least working on problems of minor importance. And so began the study of modern literature. There was a good deal of resistance at first.
