It's interesting to discover that people in Medieval times bored of studying too. "Pen and ink and copy-book, / How funereal they look; / Ovid's songs, how dull with age, / Still more any other's page. / Never mind what's not allowed, / Love is youth's temptation : / here we go, a glorious crowd, / Hell-bent for vacation." Heh. ( )

This book verges on textbook. The verses in it are attributed to the Goliard Poets and runs along the lines of the Troubadors and Trouveres of Renaissance France. The words are beautiful and telling of the era. It isn't exactly a "read for fun" type of book. ( )
