Lit Discussion material

Our monthly lit discussion group today took on The Ballad of the White Horse. Contrary to typical procedings we made our way through the epic in a fairly methodical fashion. Of course tangents are unavoidable which explains our brief discussion of Enchanted. A few points that stick out in my memory are:
Book I: The question which Alfred asked Mary, and the answer he recieved.
Book II: The contrast between the reactions of the chiefs whom Alfred recruits
Book III: The Danish lords who sang, the varying types of hopelessness which their songs expressed and how different Alfred's song was from their's.
Okay, there was a lot more... GilbertGirl? Algernon? Anybody else who came? Help!?!? (:
