About meI teach 16th and 17th British literature, particularly drama. I read a lot of fiction--historical novels set in many places and time periods, contemporary British fiction, classics, and more. Fiction keeps me sane in the midst of reading stacks of freshman essays!
About my libraryMost of the books in my LT catalogue are for my leisure reading. I have barely begun to add scholarly books related to my research and teaching.
