Some of us at Fussy (i.e., the staff who does more of the newswire writing!) are, like former English professor Stacy Pratt, fans of Taylor Swift.

Anyway, that doesn’t mean Pratt can’t take an unbiased look at Swift’s literary allusions and grade their accuracy.
Overall, of course, she gives Swift “great big ‘A,’ and not the kind that Hester Prynne wore.”
But when it comes to referencing classic stories, how well has Swift done?
