Literary terms

Passion project

I wouldn't be a writer if I didn't have a certain obsession with words – so words about literature are even more of a gift. Writing essays at university about bawdy medieval French poetry was made infinitely more bearable by the discovery of these fancy terms that did a lot of the work for me. I love that we've come up with words about word-based devices. It's so deliciously meta. Is my passion project self-indulgent? Yes. Do I care? (Just going to leave that question there are as a cheeky bit of rhetoric.)
