Icame to teach in
the English department
because of the strength of
the department. There's a
great Renaissance faculty
here, there's a wonderful
creative writing program

- the kinds of interests
that are hoth academic

different from each other
by virtue of our person-

of a very diverse group of

drives me to Shakespeare
is the kind of silliness of
some of the plays and the
bawdy humor, which I
always enjoy.
