It's been done, Narda, but the books are all in Norwegian. The Smithsonian's
Scandinavian curators are v. busy rethinking Viking culture right now, and
they're doing a pretty good job. I had all those art history memorization of
slides and pix from Jansen too. We used to rename alot of the religious
paintings (so many alike, e.g. all those St. Sebastians) so we could remember
them better: "Guy With Pizza On Head"; "Jesus in a Pink Towel" etc. Once I had
a nun for a prof. She was vicious. She gave me an A- on a grad research paper
for ONE dangling participle. At the time I didn't even know I had dangled
anything. Then Sister Wendy came along and ruined further classes with my
nun--too many similarities. Where were we, oh yeah, hostas. I wonder if there
are hostas in Norway.
