    Marrying cousins

    You keep mentioning that Jude and Sue are cousins which should prevent them from hooking up, but I've read a lot of Jane Austen and she has cousins marrying frequently. I've been listening to the podcast for a while and I don't remember if Hardy said anything about the issue (nor if he mentioned the degree of relatedness), or if it was you who is exercised about this, so if it was Hardy, then I'm obviously wrong to mention this, and I apologize.

    Hi Michael. First, I'd like to say that I've enjoyed your work ever since you were in Ed. Anyway, here's an analogy to explain the word, "bishopric": Mayor is to city as bishop is to bishopric. I love listening to you reading and discussing Jude the Obscure, and, believe it or not, I love it when you find words you don't know and look them up. Plus, it makes me feel superior when I know what they mean. Keep up the good work! Gail
