Sobre mi biblioteca
Most 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.
Sobre mí
I'm a recently retired professor of 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. I have started to write a historical novel, something I've wanted to do for a long, long time.
