The more the merrier

Following up on a link in a listserv email I got this morning, I noticed that somebody has already written on the project I’m working on. My first reaction was whiny: blah blah blah why should I do it when this person has obviously done a wonderful job at conveying exactly what I wanted to say, in a cogent manner, and, what’s more, within the same conceptual framework. But after reading through the entire review my disappointment evaporated. After all, I’m only writing a dissertation, and it’s always good to have a background of similar work to draw on, instead of being the lonely voice in a crowd of resistant Marxists. And now, off to work; after all, I have to make time to read Christine Harold’s book.
