Running Grave, Part Zero: A Ring Reading

The Prologue as a Ring Structure

Being far more of a paragon of patience, our Headmaster Dr John Granger has been delaying his gratification of completing The Running Grave by charting each part of the book into (hopefully) a classical ring structure complete with latch, turn and turtleback. Currently you can see his results of Part 1 here and Part 2 here.

I was very privileged to be given an almost complete day tutorial on ring structure with John when he visited Wales this Summer using The Ink Black Heart as a text. This was a remarkable act of generosity when you consider he was only in the country for a few days, and one was already reserved for accepting his doctorate from Swansea University.
