The Hardest Class In Literature

Someone hacked into the Trinity College, Dublin website and added a new faculty member. This new member presumably is very muscular and knows how to use a heavy sword. An excerpt:

The "Long Room Hub Associate Professor in Hyborian Studies and Tyrant Slaying" has a compelling resume: as well as having "spent several years tethered to the fearsome 'Wheel of Pain', time which he now feels helped provide him with the mental discipline and sado-masochistic proclivities necessary to successfully tackle contemporary critical theory" he has also, apparently, completed a PhD, entitled "To Hear The Lamentation of Their Women: Constructions of Masculinity in Contemporary Zamoran Literature". Anyone considering attending his classes will be interested to note that his courses for 2011/2012 include "The Relevance of Crom in the Modern World", "Theories of Literature", "Vengeance for Beginners", "Deciphering the Riddle of Steel" and "D.H. Lawrence".
