Please list three favorite works of literature:

Breakfast of Champions, The Poisonwood Bible, The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven.

Do you have a favorite literary time or movement? If so, what?

Sometimes I think I don't like romanticism at all. And then someone mentions something else, say that Frankenstein is romanticism, and I realize that I love Frankenstein, and I probably shouldn't make sweeping judgements about literary movements, good or bad.

Do you have a favorite or go-to style of literary criticism? If so, what?

Babbling.

Please list three favorite authors:

Margaret Atwood, Michael Chabon, Tom Wolfe

What was the last book that you thoroughly enjoyed?

We're going to read the Illiad guys, you don't even know how great it's going to be.

Introduction

I am not a English major, but a Theater Arts major. Nonetheless, we both read lots of texts and analyze them, and we both claim Shakespeare, so I'm hoping we can have some humanities/arts love.

What Elizabeth is saying about this Meetup Group

Definitely the best case scenario for what I was expecting. An obviously smart group but with no hint of intellectual snobbery. It was my first meeting and everyone was really open and welcoming. Shy people: I have scouted it out for you, and it's okay!
