Sir: Nicholas Lezard is "haunted" by the literary ignorance of University Challenge students who failed to recognise pictures of James Joyce, Iris Murdoch and T S Eliot (The Joys of Modern Life, 2 March). Oh dear, he'd better count me in among those spectres of ignorance, because in spite of my degree in English Literature I haven't a clue what any of them look like. Stupid me, I always read the words instead of looking at the pictures.
