My students definitely are from a different generation. I have failed at explaining why “Ben-Beley” is not a typical European name. This name was used in an Enlightenment-era work of literature, and it is crucial for the understanding of the text that Ben-Beley is an outsider to Spain.
One thought on “Ben-Beley”
Yes, mine don’t get it either and it is not because they know that people with such names live in Europe now.
