About me[edit]

Lion waiting in Namibia.jpg

I'm British, studying for a BA in Literature.

My interests are Shakespeare's plays, Elizabethan poetry, nineteenth-century poetry, essays, and eighteenth and nineteenth-century novels. I'm also interested in literary criticism, particularly of Shakespeare.

I'm also interested in adding public domain illustrations from original nineteenth-century or early twentieth-century books to Wikisource (or, better still, to Commons, if they are public domain in the US and in the country of origin).

I'm an administrator here at Wikisource. I also have an account at at Commons, at Wikipedia, and at Meta, but am more likely to see messages left here.
