While walking to the university today, I decided that Kayne West's "Gold Digger" is really a modern interpretation of Jane Austen's theory of marriage. Kayne's call that "we want pre nup! We want pre nup!" echoes Austen's own concerns of mercenary marriages.
I think there's a conference paper in that.
N.B. - This is what 3 hours of sleep after an all-night thesis-a-thon sounds like.
