I'm still relatively new to the site, so if you ended up here because of some ass-hole-ish incident in which I took action, please visit my Talk Page and vent bile (justified or not) there. I hate giving any autobiography to someone who believes I only care about myself.
Oh Good. They're gone.
I'm a Canadian editor and very much a fan of this site. My fandom extends so far as a great desire to make the site better. My interests are sporadic, and at the moment revolve around Literature.
At the moment, my desire is for greater clarity of some articles on the 'bigger' work of Literature that I feel are underrated. We can all complain about lack of reading, but giving a 'road map' of a book can be a great help to new readers of work. Besides, how intimidating can a work be if it can be fluently summarized in less than 100 k?
One of the 'Lists' of World Literature that I'm generally working off as a guide is Harold Bloom's Western Canon. He might have disowned it, but I've found adopting it has lead me towards some of the most interesting works I've encountered.
The following lists may never be fulfilled, but here they are for future giggles.
Articles I've worked on
- The Golden Ass
- Various Redirect Pages in my Foolish Youth
- Why Bother (essay) Jonathan Franzen's frequently mentioned but never clarified "Harper's Essay"
- The Solitudes
- Four Freedoms
- Love and Sleep
Articles I would like to improve/see improved
- The Faerie Queene
- The Tenant of Wildfell Hall
- Nothing Like the Sun: A Story of Shakespeare's Love Life
- Under the Volcano
- Can I get a whoop whoop for Canadian Lit?
- The article is generally fine, but needs to be organized in a more helpful manner
- Year of the Flood
- Alias Grace
- The Blind Assassin
- Margaret Atwood
Pipe Dreams of Future Articles
- Lucy Negro
- A public prostitute of Medieval England and purported lover of Shakespeare
- The main problem being most accounts are unreliable and, let's face it, not likely stocked in any nearby library
- Juvenalia of Brontë Children
- Would be a very large project
- One of the only and most extensively surviving Juvenalia of prose fiction writers
As a side note or fun fact to all those who have read to the end of this vanity page, I once tried to initiate the writing of a series of articles on Existentialism from a Christian perspective on Conservapedia to be banned for five years. Please don't try to deduce who I am, ask why I ever thought this would be a good idea, or why I was there in the first place.
