Fantasy Novel

8 October, 2008

So, I’m taking this course on Dante, and now I’m reading all about the political battles between first the Guelphs and the Ghibellines, and then between the White and Black Guelphs. Is it just me, or do these sound like the names of little furry characters in some weird sci-fi/fantasy novel? I dunno where I’m getting the furry part, but they just scream “ewok” to me… Maybe it’s actually that Studio Ghibli produced the Totoro film?
