Ha, you don’t need to pay me — just sent it my way. I’m a professor but on break, so I have time to read a bit more than usual right now. I can’t promise I can be as detailed as you would like, but I’d be happy to give you my impressions — keeping in mind that I’m just as flawed, biased, and confused as everyone else. :) My e-mail is jgrasso91@gmail.com

But yes, you have to put things aside and then read them in the spirit of what they were. You can make changes and revise, but you can’t revise the spirit out of it. So many writers and artists have done this — think of George Lucas’ minor, but annoying revisions of his Star Wars Trilogy. Thanks for reading!
