Good to see that the leading scholar of fairy tales and myth Marina Warner has been made a Dame (the female version of a knighthood), in the Queen’s New Year Honours List…

Professor Warner was made a dame for services to higher education and literary scholarship, despite a year in which she resigned from the University of Essex in protest at a management style that she likened to “the world of Chinese communism”. She is now professor of English and creative writing at Birkbeck, University of London.”
