Untitled[edit]

Since, I'm the one that initiated this article, I feel it's my obligation to start an initial discussion on ROBERT PETERS and ask for the advices from other editors how to improve this article. Pjt48 18:33, 12 June 2007 (UTC)

Victorian scholar[edit]

I noticed the red link for Victorian scholar in the info box. I take it from the rest of the article that Peters is a scholar of Victorian literature and so have piped the link to that article. I think this makes sense. If you search for an article on classical scholar you get redirected to classics. Yaris678 (talk) 14:16, 3 October 2009 (UTC)

I have just taken the word scholar out of the link. Probably better that way. Yaris678 (talk) 07:38, 4 October 2009 (UTC)

PhD[edit]

What did Peters do his PhD in? The sentence "He holds a Ph.D." is a bit short and doesn't tell you much, given that he is a professor. It might sound better if it said something like "He studied Victorian literature for his Ph.D." Yaris678 (talk) 07:48, 4 October 2009 (UTC)

Actor[edit]

Has Robert Peters done any notable acting? I notice that this isn't mentioned anywhere, except in the very first sentence. If it is just a hobby of his then it’s probably best not to mention it so early in the article. Yaris678 (talk) 22:31, 15 November 2009 (UTC)

Hello Yaris
His acting career ran parallel with his poetry performances and readings. It would be hard for me to say how illustrious is acting career was but he did countless one man performances replete with memorized scripts, costumes, lights, sets & sound tracks and many venues such as at Barnsdall Art Park in Los Angeles, at the Carpet Company Theatre (now defunct) in Los Angeles, at the Fine Art Theatre at UCI, St Matthews Church near Broadway NY and many more places. These performances are all well documented in RP's journals & scrapbooks replete with reviews etc which are all housed & catalogue at UCSD Mandeville Collection. I didn't want to monopolize this article and I'm hoping other folks would flesh out RP article as time goes by even though I'm an expert on RP's long productive career. Your point is well-taken. I would be delighted if you are willing to extrapolate from the small amount info I've given here to give notability to Robert Peters acting. Pjt48 (talk) 02:20, 16 November 2009 (UTC)

Hi Pjt,

Based on what you have said, I think the best thing would be to remove the word "actor" from the lead and add a section to the article called "Performance", where you can talk about the things you have just mentioned.
