Which of Shakespeare's plays is your favorite and why do you enjoy it?
I enjoy Shakespeare's play "Much Ado About Nothing", because his comedies are incredibly funny, and finding hidden innuendoes in the complex Shakespearean English is a fun game to play while reading. This comedy has added elements of drama and romance and I think that this is one of the most deceptively complex plays that Shakespeare wrote.
Subject: Folklore and Mythology
What is your favorite myth and why?
One of my favorite myths is the myth of Pandora's Box. It deals with the themes of curiosity and that while there is such thing as healthy curiosity, learning boundaries and limits can be important. I have also always been fond of the concept that even with all of the sadness and negative emotions in the world, hope remains.
What is something about English that you love?
I started my love for English and reading from an early age. I went to the library so often that the librarians knew me by name and allowed me to check out as many books as I wanted. I loved having the ability to escape into books and even when I was assigned books to read I took the opportunity to learn from these books that I would not have read of my own volition. I want to share my love of English with as many people as possible!
