Currently, you can find posts in these following topics:
- Theoretically Speaking – Introductions to literary and critical theories, and discussions on how certain theories shape the understanding of literature and give insight to the world at large.
- Texts in Time – Introductions to various (and mostly canonical) texts, explorations of their historical, social, and cultural value, and ways in which literary criticism can be applied to look at those texts.
- You Should Be Writing – Insights into the writing process, ranging from discussions with a psychological twist, to the nuts and bolts of writing.
- Let’s Get Technical – All you’ve ever wanted to know about literary techniques so you can better enjoy a poem, or play around with words of your own. We can get physical, too (about said literary techniques, of course—I don’t know what you had in mind there).
So you may be thinking, “Gee, sounds like she’s got a bunch of long and boring academic essays.” Well, yes—and no. Think of them as lightly-seasoned, slow-roasted essays (or essays drenched in chocolate with a large dollop of Chantilly cream, if that’s what you fancy), ready to be consumed by all (though the servings themselves may be a tad too generous).
And as for the (arguably) more creative things, there’ll be:
- Wordless Wednesdays – Visual stimuli in the middle of the week! (Warning: I like macro. A lot.)
- Dribs and Drabs – Everything else. This will most likely be in the form of sharing titbits about my literature-related experiences in the UK.
And then there are things I’ll post when I…post about them. (Yup, I’m totally organised.)
I hope you’ll enjoy your time here, and if there’s anything else you’d like to see, please either leave a comment here or drop me a line.
